On Jul. 11, 2017 NPR’s Yuki Noguchi reported “Some Employers Are Rethinking Telework, Citing A Need For Better Collaboration” about some companies like Bank of America, Best Buy, IBM, Reddit and Yahoo making more employees work onsite. Many endorse the Agile work method, where employees are all crammed into the same room until they solve a problem. Despite this counter trend the movement is toward remote work because not all the talent works in the same building, town or country. Goody Group’s Jay Friedman said “Being remote forced us to document more — so document decisions, document learning, training, etc. — and that actually reduced the amount of time and back-and-forth,” keeping everyone on the same page and on task, Friedman says.”
