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.
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.

The pandemic's impact on collaborative software company Quip's technical recruiting team started slowly.
First, their roster of engineering interviewers started to dwindle as rising concerns about COVID-19 led some of them to start working from home in January and February, remembers technical recruiter Grace Kim. "We needed to rethink how we conducted our onsite interviews with a limited pool," she says.
Brittany Boardman went to her first interview with Stack Overflow without expecting much.
"I'm not technical, I'm not an engineer. And I wasn't necessarily looking [for a new job]. But Stack just blew me away," says Brittany of her first exposure to the company behind the world's largest and most trusted software developer and technologist community. "The people I met that day seemed like they genuinely liked coming to work. There was this cohesive belief in what the company was doing. I was converted pretty quickly after that interview—Stack was somewhere I wanted to join."
