On telecommuting


Once a work experience is designed, it must be communicated and inculcated. And this doesn’t mean a short course or an annual video lecture with a few inane questions to see if you still get it-it means a constant, ongoing endeavor to understand how people are working, how work conditions are affecting results and what needs to change to improve performance, or keep it at desirable levels. Workers and managers need to develop professionally together, not apart, because telecommuting is a feedback loop, not a linear activity.  –Daniel Rasmus

After enjoying dinner in New York with scenario planner Daniel Rasmus last night, we revisited his Fast Company post about managing telecommuters – and workers in general.
