This week’s book review is REMOTE by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson.
REMOTE defines a business model that embraces a structure where employees do not work from the traditional corporate office. They can work from home, from Starbucks, while traveling, or pretty much anywhere that has high speed internet! It is full of great examples, ideas, tools and techniques to make the “remote employee” model work for any knowledge based business.
My takeaway from this book is that ALL knowledge based businesses need to get on board with this business model or become irrelevant. Employees are demanding more flexibility and businesses are demanding lower costs. This model addresses each concern and is a win-win for the business and its employees!
