Besides the productivity benefits, some remote work software is having a profound impact on workplace democracy. Tools that have made the workplace less hierarchal and increased employee involvement in company operations.
Since starting to work remotely or joining a remote company, have you felt your workplace become more democratic?
Maybe more decision-making power in projects or being included in important company operations despite not being a manager?
I always felt the remote companies I worked for had a much flatter hierarchy than the larger ones that required me to be in an office.
It made me think of the remote tools that we use and by more traditional companies adopting them, they would become more democratic.
Some examples are:
-Slack enables free speech
-monday.com distributes decision-making power
-Deel offers equal access to opportunity to international talent
-Notion makes the organization more transparent
