Work From Home is about empowering us to think and work exactly where we are personally most productive. The point of flexibility here is to untether our schedules and the stress associated with them and allow our work to happen where we want it to.
Work From Anywhere literally means anywhere, including the very office we would normally commute to.
Flexibility means adapting our schedules and our locations for the kinds of knowledge work we are trying to do. Some days are all meetings as we try to coordinate a number of projects. Some days we need to shut out the world and just dive down into writing our novels, or developing a new algorithm, or putting together that big presentation for the all-hands meeting next week. Some days we need a mix of both. Some days we need the comfort of home, while other days we need the comfort of colleagues.
In short, Work From Anywhere perfectly encapsulates that freedom and dynamism our schedules deserve. This new workplace flexibility is not about saving money, nor long-term social distancing. In the end, it’s an investment in employee well-being, productivity, and ultimately, profitability.
