WORK FROM ANYWHERE WEEK? YES PLEASE!
This article by FastCompany popped up in my inbox this morning and I HAD to share. Water filter company Soma integrated a Work From Anywhere Week (WFAW) into their business last year, after founder Mike Del Ponte had a killer experience exploring a new city AND working at the same time. And, upon his return, wanting his staff to experience the same thing.
Three (of the multiple) benefits highlighted as being big time pros of the WFAW Soma implemented? Flexibility. Inspiration. Productivity. ALL YES...SO MUCH YES.
Often thinking I was 'broken' or 'lazy' for my aversion to a 'one working space' mentality of the majority of businesses, best believe I read this article with a big time 'EFF YES!', relieved to know that the inspiration that comes through varied working spaces with different people passing by, or an altogether new community/city/country is a shared experience by at least one other human and IS the source of some of the most productive working time e-v-e-r.
Internet high fives, Mike, and all WFAW employers everywhere. I salute you.
Have a read - share your thoughts!
To ending big weeks with an enthusiastic EFF YES!
