Individuals go remote for more work–life freedom, to work in places where they are most productive, and to work on projects they care deeply about. Companies go remote when they can’t find the talent they need locally, to cut costs, and to improve worker happiness and engagement.

Technology is making the world a smaller place and opening up new possibilities for combining work and life. As these options grow, the standard 9-to-5 job becomes less and less attractive, especially to the younger generations, who generally seem to recoil at the idea of spending every day in a cubicle.

In this talk, we will discuss in greater detail what’s prompting people and companies to make the step toward going virtual – and the challenges they face when they do it. What do we get when we go remote? Is it worth it?

Specific talking points:

  • Why people and companies go remote

  • What does it mean to be “present” in the modern day workplace

  • Examples of remote teams who are doing great things

  • Secrets to successful remote working
