While companies have become increasingly comfortable with the idea that hybrid work arrangements are a permanent reality, they are still working to re-orient how they operate. In other words, the day-to-day function has mostly been a revision of our historical work environment. Companies have swapped out in-person meetings for Zoom calls, updated benefits to include…Details
Not working from home. Not working at the office. What the new workplace might look like. The focus of the last few years have been on working remotely and hybrid work arrangements. Understandably so, as the way employees are interacting with organisations has changed dramatically. But the conversation has centered around two alternatives: working at…Details

Whether you learn someone is working fully remote permanently or is on site every day, it seems equally normal. While the initial resistance…Details

When I began my career in the late nineties, I was working in Warsaw. There were not a lot of Americans, but a handful of us began to informally meet on Saturday mornings. Attendance was not required by our employer; it was just a bunch of people (mostly guys) who came into the office on…Details
