The Boston Globe recently published an article featuring Constance Hadley, Associate Professor of Management and Organizations, discussing her research on remote and hybrid work.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, workers have adapted to working from their kitchen tables, but are now evolving to finding their ‘hybrid’ workplace. A variety of places are being used by employees to camp out, including coffee shops, video game tournaments, gyms, and more. Almost anywhere with WiFi meets the needs of today’s 9-5ers.
“These makeshift offices can offer workers the best of both worlds — the social benefits of an office, with the autonomy of working from home.”
Hadley also comments that many of these employees feel that working from anywhere allows them the freedom to choose their workplace and their workspace.
