  1. The article about the CEO having everyone go home for 2 weeks was super interesting. When I was a consultant, I would have assumed that everyone would have been as productive as normal and work/life balance would have increased… BUT…… Now that I work for a more traditional company, I totally get what the article says. People either 1) just don’t work or 2) feel disconnected and not part of a team. Working from home is a double edged sword. It takes a lot of management oversight and employee engagement to make it successful for sure!

    • I think so much also depends on the company culture and what you’re used to. At my company, just about everyone works from home… but not full-time. So you learn to work from home when it makes sense, and come into the office when it doesn’t. I think that helps a lot with making working from home time more productive.
