Remote Work Round-Up – July 20, 2017
We're always exploring the question – does working remotely really make you more productive?
While you may find that answer somewhat aggravating in its lack of decisiveness, it makes sense. How people work best can differ from individual to individual and situation to situation.
The lesson learned is really to back away from extremes. The answer is not black and white. It depends on a person's role within a company, and the company's culture. For example, if your position tends to depend on collaboration, then working remotely may not be for you. If your job is largely autonomous, then you may produce more by working from home. And even then, there are nuances where some tasks you perform will benefit by being done remotely, while others fare better by working in-office.
So, in essence, the answer remains: sorta, sometimes, maybe. The only way to truly learn if working remotely makes you more productive is to give it a try. Check out some of our open remote positions below, and for even more opportunities, be sure to check out our Jobs page.
