How Office Culture can feel Restrictive

 

For the longest time, in-person office culture has been the dominant way to work. However, this is changing. Labour movements and the pandemic have created a situation where the general populace is ready for change. If it's been the only way you’ve ever worked, it may be difficult to imagine what life would be like in a more employee-oriented culture that allows flexibility in work hours and location.

Five Top Work Benefits that Remote-First Companies Offer

When thinking about the benefits of working from home an image may form in your head: You, sitting on your sofa, the TV is on, it’s the latest series on Netflix, season 2 of Space Force, there’s a half-full Ben and Jerry’s, the other half is in your stomach, along with 3 cups of coffee, and finally your laptop screen featuring the work you haven’t touched in half an hour.
