One day offices will be a thing of the past

One day offices will be a thing of the past | BUSINESS and more |

The debate about remote working has raged for the past week following Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer's opposition to her staff working from home. Now Michael Bloomberg has said he's always thought working from home is 'one of the dumber ideas I've ever heard'.

I have enormous respect for Michael Bloomberg and have rarely disagreed with anything he has done or said. However, on this occasion I disagree completely. Many employees who work from home are extremely diligent, get their job done, and get to spend more time with their families. They waste less time commuting and get a better work/life balance. To force everybody to work in offices is old school thinking.

Martin Gysler's insight:

I totally agree with Richard and I think that we must be able to change something in our paradigms and old school thoughts.


What is your opinion?
