Time looks at the Future of work.
Some very interesting things there. The office as a concept needs to be challenged, for sure. This is covered here. Fascinating. (Incidentally it is written by Seth Godin.) I loved the concepts in this. Simply put, if a company can outsource work from across countries, surely it can get outsource it from its office to employees homes?
Why have a building and tons of resources to gather employees all over a city and get them into an office building, when it can be done just as effectively on virtual mode? Just meet up monthly at an offsite. Ok, if not for 100% of staff, surely for 50% staff, with people working alternate days or whatever?
