Remote Work Round-Up – July 27, 2017

We learn three important lessons as children: learn from mistakes, wash your hands, and eat your greens –– it's the only way to get dessert. While these lessons may be ingrained in the back of our heads (thanks mom and dad), they are easy to forget with all of the responsibilities we pretend to be on top of and the distractions that take our minds off of the responsibilities we aren't completing.

Last week, one humiliated Chipotle employee, let's call them Employee X, forgot one of these lessons. Even if Employee X remembered the important lesson of washing their hands, they still went to work with norovirus, spreading it to more than 130 other people. According to Fortune, the highly-contagious illness made Chipotle lose nearly $1 billion dollars in value. You can almost hear the disappointment in their parents: "C'mon Employee X, you can do better." *Sigh of disapproval*

In the spirit of life lessons, we can learn from the mistakes of Employee X. Instead of hurting your company's stock or giving unwanted viruses and nausea to innocent people by simply showing up to work, why not avoid the problem completely and work from home? Now, I'm sure Employee X can't sell burritos from their house (if Employee X still has a job, that is), but if your career allows you to work from home, what are you waiting for?

And if not…check out this list of amazing remote jobs below and never get anyone sick again! Okay, fine, we can't make that promise, but we CAN promise that this list is pretty awesome. So scroll down, dive in, and apply today! And for even more open opportunities, be sure to check out our Jobs page.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.


Supporting Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Only 4% of companies that say they value diversity consider disabilities. Even fewer include learning and thinking differences.

While neurodiversity is a concept that is gaining more awareness, many employers have still not fully grasped the importance (and benefits) of understanding neurodiversity and how to effectively incorporate and retain neurodivergent individuals in their organizations.

30+ Ways Companies Are Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

Founded in 1989, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends October 15. The four-week span over two calendar months may seem a bit odd, but it comes with good reason, as it covers independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, as well as key celebrations in Hispanic and Latin communities. Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

We asked some of our partner companies what they're doing to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work this year, and we were inspired by the wide range of responses, from highlighting the impact that employees have in local communities to hosting fireside conversations on allyship to sharing performances and instruction of famous cultural dances.ot only are these companies honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year. Here's what they're doing, in their own words:


The Workplace of the Future: How Companies Can Plan for The Ever-Changing

As vaccination numbers climb and some—though not all—of our collective paranoia begins to dissipate, businesses are starting to reopen. Employers face a key decision: how will they respond? Will they go back to the ways of life before COVID? Or will they adopt more permanently the flexibility and remote-first work necessitated by the pandemic?

As part of our Corporate Circles: Inclusive Conversation Series, join PowerToFly's Global Director of DEI Sienna Brown and Global DEI Strategist & Trainer Zara Chaudary on Friday, October 1st from 12pm to 1:30pm Eastern for an interactive roundtable as we discuss and share the tools and mindset needed to create the office of the future in a post-pandemic world.
