The first DC snowfall is a wonderful reminder of the importance of mobility in the modern workplace. A mobile work environment empowers the workforce to make decisions that prioritize their safety and wellbeing while enabling mission-critical activities to continue.
Looking at a price tag for a workplace relocation or renovation can be scary: rent, space design, construction, movers, technology, furniture, swing space.
When The Clearing made the choice to institute mandatory telework in the wake of COVID-19, I was very anxious about staying productive in a 100% remote environment.
We are six months into full-time remote work. I don’t know about you, but I’m beginning to forget what being in the office felt like! And I miss it. I miss it so much that I find myself rewatching workplace-centric TV like Mad Men, The Office, 30 Rock, etc. As I rewatch these shows, I think about the evolution of the physical workspace and where it’s headed in the near future.
I’m always on the hunt for opportunities to engage in conversations that broaden my perspective and challenge my assumptions. Most recently, I found just such an opportunity in DC at the Work Better Day conference, “an experience-driven event, bringing together curious minds, visionary thinkers, innovators, and change-makers.”
