Why are you rolling out an office plan and a structure and a culture to hopefully work for people without doing that same disciplined AB testing. So imagine you’re Apple and you’ve agreed to work from home Wednesday-Friday.
It doesn’t have to necessarily be you are attending the City Council meeting, but that’s wonderful. Rogé karmaI have to say, I love those examples, and I really hope that you’re right about this. But I’m also worried because what I’ve often seen happen is the opposite. As we were talking about before, one of the major social trends of the past 70 years is that we’ve become far less rooted, far less bound to particular places. Anne helen petersenI mean, this is the blessing and the curse of the salaried job.
The first is that, during the pandemic, especially in the early months, the way that people reacted to the anxiety of feeling like they weren’t effectively demonstrating how much they were working was by putting meetings on people’s calendars. Rogé karmaSo there’s another angle of this I want to get at here because, if we’re talking about these problems of loneliness, of alienation, one response is we have to invest in community. Another response is we have to change our view of work. But another way to approach this is maybe what we need is better technology, and I’m really interested in your thoughts as a technology reporter here, Charlie, because if you go back 10 years, working from home was truly terrible. So when you’re in the office, you’re still dealing with the half empty office. I think, as Anne said, this work — most companies, most executives, most people aren’t willing right now to do that. It’s so much easier to create some kind of half-assed, oh, you’re going to be in the office two and half days a week policy, and without that design, you get what we’re seeing.

We’re doing this because we know there are a number of organizations who have either rarely or never had their employees work remotely and we’re just doing what we can to help. There’s a lot of information out there, some good some bad, remote work podcast and it’s our hope to add to that good and helpful information. But Sinha says that opportunities to shift to a fully flexible way of working may be being missed, with companies implementing new policies as rigid as the old ones.

Her new podcast was designed to address the fact that many people are working from home for the first time in the new era of social distancing, and to provide guidance around this new reality. And the solution to this is not to say all people of color, black and brown professionals from now on are remote. That’s the wrong thing to do, but to understand what this reveals and how can we use the various tools that we have today in order to have more diversity, more representation and more inclusion. We’re in hybrid format and this requires us to use different skills, different ways of conveying information. This is kind of the world we are in today, it’s not one that is better than the other. When you talk about the rules of engagement, you’re reminding me of something that I found extremely valuable when I taught virtually for the first time.
