The Future of Work is Asynchronous/Remote (or at least it should be)

  • Automattic (parent of WordPress) pioneered asynchronous work.
  • Employees set schedules, but must meet goals.
  • Asynchronous work creates logistical challenges, but leads to better hires and productivity.
  • Traditional offices force everyone to work at the lowest common denominator.
  • Asynchronous allows employees to design their own work environment.
  • It might take 24 hours for five people to respond to an issue that could have been resolved in a 30-minute synchronous meeting.
