#17 [MINI] – Challenges (And Benefits) of Working From Home

The Seventeenth episode of the Great Deep Podcast Series looks at the challenges and benefits of working from home in a time of Coronavirus, and some of the implications.

There’s also a blog post on the subject, titled A whole new world: Reflections after a week of lockdown.

Many of the points here I must credit to Pete Flynn from Libryo who put together this fantastic blog.

Pete’s headings for the challenges of working remotely (and how to overcome them) include:

Remote is lonely
Remote tests trust
Remote is default-dehumanising
Remote accentuates different kinds of organisational dysfunction
Remote requires more (two-way) empathy and flexibility
Remote defaults to working too hard
Bonus 🙂 Remote is better
