Cynthia C. Froggatt tackles the pros and cons (mostly pros) of having your employees work at a location away from the office, particularly in their homes. She includes plenty of successful examples, an eight-step blueprint for making it work, and addresses the usual corporate reservations about the whole topic. You’ll find a refreshing dash of wit on every page, which one would expect from an author whose book title is, Work Naked. getAbstract.com recommends this book to anyone interested in mechanics of the virtual company.
In this summary, you will learn
- The benefits of working at home or remote work;
- The most common obstacles to remote work proposals and how you can overcome them, and
- How to use technology to establish connections between remote workers.
