CEO & Co-Founder @ Workfrom
"Remote and virtual work will become even more mainstream, ushering in a wave of innovations that address the social-emotional support people need to do their best work from anywhere. We currently have an isolation and loneliness epidemic in virtual work, which will only get worse as more people and companies find their way to remote work. Look for experiences that focus less on the information flow (e.g. screen sharing, whiteboards, and task management) and more on the flow of wellness, community, and engagement.
I predict knowledge workers will soon look much more like tiny autonomous businesses than the cog in the machine we’ve seen over the past many decades. Each teammate will bring their own tools, processes, preferences, and even resources to help the larger mission—and as a result, companies will invest in making this easier. The decentralization of central control will lead to stronger team culture, faster innovation, and even more productivity gains in the work from anywhere era."
