Dropbox CEO Drew Houston told CNN that certain workers could escape the "grueling commutes" of the past and gain more control over their days.
Sorry for sharing a Business Insider piece 😅
I imagine Houston's major points are largely already accepted by the community here:
Dropbox CEO Drew Houston told CNN that knowledge workers can now escape the "grueling commutes" of the past and gain more control over their days.
- Dropbox's cofounder said the 40-hour office week could be a thing of the past.
- Drew Houston was one of 15 CEOs asked by CNN about how the pandemic could change the future of work.
- Knowledge workers will be able to escape their commute and gain more control over their schedule, he said.
What I do find more interesting though is the point that "companies and workers [will need] to rethink the social contract between employees and employer."
It's a point I often see shared and debated here (ex. Company A embraces remote but determines different compensation based on employee's geography); and I think it's cool to have more companies openly talk about those challenges and what potential approaches to managing a company's culture should be.
