Remote Work Round-Up

Jan. 11th 2018

Millennial women are taking the workforce by storm, and now these millennial women are not only infiltrating leadership positions, but they're also starting families, successfully.

But how?

Writer Christine Michel Carter writes:

Presumably these millennial moms are working in an environment that sets them up for success, and as a result they are happier, feel more valued and are more productive. When the women in the study were specifically asked why they feel they thrive in virtual companies, female leaders suggested remote environments create more space for handle conflicting career and family responsibilities.


A similar study by Remote.co also noted that, "businesses with large remote workforces have a higher percentage of women in leadership roles (including founders and CEOs) than traditional office-based companies."

Some speculate that perhaps these remote women are so successful because they grew up with technology and have learned how to effectively communicate from afar. We've found remote working moms in general (millennial or non), to be some of the most driven and hard working employees, and while we'd like to attribute their success to technology, we think it has more to do with one of their core values- commitment.

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.
