“The people getting sick with covid are not wealthy people who can work from home and are probably getting vaccinated. The people who are getting sick are the people who have no choice but to leave their house and expose themselves to the virus at work.” https://t.co/mqcGAdHSMf

The pandemic forced employers to embrace flexibility in working location.
But flexibility of working hours is far from being the norm. As big firms encourage staff back to the office, pressure for adjustable work schedules could mount https://t.co/yv9znWUJkc

REMOTE WORK IS HERE TO STAY
Rory is explaining how, if 9 persons can make it to a physical meeting, and a single one can't, high probability the meeting will be on Zoom.
My example: In a meeting in Germany with 9 german speakers +1 nonTeutonic, the meeting will be in English. https://t.co/gdllQdkRLk

For Americans struggling to work from home with a choppy internet connection ...
For the kids finishing their homework in a fast food parking lot ...
For the rural small business owners unable to set up an online shop ...
Broadband is infrastructure.

While I appreciate the complexity of navigating a pandemic, so many decisions during this have been made seemingly from one view point. One where space wasn’t an issue & home was safe; one where working from home and access to digital currency was a given and internet available. https://t.co/apgCVGBkWT

If you are an employer, give Work from Home.
If you are an employee, demand Work from Home.
Even if we are not moving towards a total lockdown, we need to follow the same stringent measures that we had during the first wave!

Conversation can only happen when we're 100% involved. Remote work makes this all that more important.
Checking notifications, perusing social media, and responding to email are the new conversation killers.
Go all-in on your conversations or choose to get all the way out.
