Rethinking what it takes to make working from home work


In the new book "Out of Office: The Big Problem and Bigger Promise of Working from Home" by Charlie Warzel and Anne Helen Petersen challenges us to rethink what it takes to make remote work work.

This is not a book about working from home during the pandemic. It is instead about decentralizing work from our lives, and the deeper questions of how to create a humane work culture that embodies flexibility, fosters more inclusive company cultures, and values life outside the office as much as inside—and why this is good for employers too.

Charlie and Anne – both working remotely since 2017 – know the terrain well—the problems and promises of working from home; the ways you can get stuck working all the time and how liberating it becomes when work is made flexible. In this book, they make the case for a future of work that benefits workers and managers, builds trust in organizations, and is more inclusive and equitable.
