Ep3 - The Future of Home Working

In this episode, we dive into the future of home working, discussing overlooked topics, ongoing changes, and how to prepare teams for evolving corporate culture.

More people than ever before are working from home and the pandemic has completely changed the outlook a lot of companies would have had towards home working. JJ Caffey, the Founder and CEO of Order In - a digital platform for the leaders of remote work - is trying to build a better workday. With a focus on community, connectedness, and efficiency, JJ's mission is to revolutionize the American work culture.

On this podcast episode, we discuss the future of home working, the things we aren't talking about and the things we should be. We break down all of the different issues, changes and improvements that are happening with the corporate working culture and how we can prepare ourselves and our teams for them.

“Support one another, everyone is going through something and we don’t know what, but you’re not alone if you feel like you’re having a tough time”

“Instead of trying to fill up your employee's day, you can boost productivity by emphasising why the work they are doing is valuable, and that what they are doing matters to the company”
