MTI Strategic Reflections

Working from home

  • Many jobs do not require physically commuting to work. Working remotely (on some days of the week), improves quality of life, enhances motivation and is good for the planet.
  • We have advanced with connectivity and technology, but some of our work habits are still stuck in the early days of the industrial revolution!
  • When companies are challenged to allow working remotely, the response tends to be, “How do we know what they will do?”
  • My response is, “As if you know what they do when they are in the office?!” Incidentally, a significant percentage of working hours are devoted to social media use and applying for other jobs!
