Remote work is here to stay

Neeley_Remote workRemote work became a necessity for many during the pandemic, and some workplaces are looking to permanently incorporate remote work into their regular operations. But remote work comes with challenges. Employees want to know how to build trust, maintain connections without in-person interactions, and strike a proper work/life balance. Managers want to know how to lead virtually, how to keep their teams motivated, what digital tools they’ll need, and how to keep employees productive. In her new book, Remote Work Revolution: Succeeding from Anywhere (2021, Harper Collins Business), Tsedal Neeley, a leading expert in virtual and global work, provides compelling, evidence-based solutions to pressing issues surrounding remote work, enabling workers and employers to successfully use remote work to benefit themselves, their groups, and ultimately their organizations. Neeley is the Naylor Fitzhugh Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School and a 1991 graduate of Boston College. She is also the author of the award-winning book, The Language of Global Success: How a Common Tongue Transforms Multinational Organizations. She has published extensively in leading scholarly and practitioner-oriented outlets and her work has appeared in media outlets such as BBC, CNN, Financial Times, NPR, the Wall Street Journal, and the Economist. Neeley answered the most pressing questions about the shift to hybrid work in this piece for the Harvard Business Review.
