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.

I thought about writing this blog piece like one of those quizzes that used to be on the back pages of Seventeen and Cosmo where each question would offer several answers of varying point levels and you'd pick one answer per question, tally up your points at the end, and match your score to one of several possible results.

Jasmine Harvey is pursuing her MBA while working full-time as a buyer for Viasat, a global communications and satellite internet company. Balancing home, work, and school while maintaining a 3.9 grade point average has been quite a challenge. Jasmine had a perfect 4.0 until she took one of the hardest classes in her program, Managerial Economics and Global, during this COVID pandemic.
