Just like the old saying goes – you become like the people you hang out with the most. In the age of the gig economy, where more and more people choose to leave their employments to start their own ventures, surrounding yourself with like-minded people to set out on a journey together with can be key to your success. That’s why I’m so incredibly happy to be a part of the Boost Women community – started in London in May 2016.
More companies should be embracing remote work – to fuel their organizations with new perspectives and energy, and to attract new talent. Remote work can mean a lot of different things – working remotely all the time, a few days a week, or making occasional trips to work from another place for a period of time. It’s about the freedom to decide yourself where you want to work from at the moment and where you feel the most engaged; be it at home, a local café, a co-working space or a different country entirely. Studies claim that allowing employees to work from home increases productivity, creativity and happiness.
