07 Apr Best-of Stories: The Virtual Work World
How relevant is the topic of virtual work now? Who is, and will continue, working remotely? How does the virtual work environment affect marketing? What do we need to learn to do it really well? We’ve compiled our best-of stories about the virtual work world to take a closer look at what has and will happen for the “remoting” workforce.
Shared Experience of the Virtual Work World
A recent study by McKinsey Global Institute says 35-40 percent of us will continue working remotely most or all of the time in the future, which tells us the topic remains more than relevant. We’ve written about working virtually a lot over the past 18 months. Yes, that’s right; Axiom stealthily went virtual Nov. 1, 2019. That gave us a good four-month head start on the advantages, pitfalls and need-to-knows of “remoting” before the pandemic sent everyone home with a laptop, some apps and souvenir coffee mug. In fact, the blogs we’ve written about the topic are some of our most popular.
