That's Genius!

[PODCAST] People Helping People w/ David Cashman

For a lot of people, work from home sounds like a dream. Roll out of bed, put on slippers, grab the coffee and the laptop and just sit in sweats on the couch all day? Who wouldn’t want that? 

But as anybody who has worked from home for longer than a few days knows, that starts to get really old, really fast. You can only go so long without showering and putting on real clothes before you start to question reality. Not to mention that it’s probably not great for you or your employer. 

On a recent episode of That’s Genius!, we sat down with David Cashman, who had some thoughts about WFH, and the future of remote work after COVID-19. 

Yes, there are benefits. A fully decentralized workforce makes it possible to take the JOB to the TALENT, not the other way around. It saves the employee the headache of relocation, and saves the employer the cost of moving an employee. 

But can too much of a good thing be a bad thing? If you’re going to commit to the WFH, you’re going to have to go all in. You can’t expect your employees to spend all day on the couch. 

What about you? Do you envision ever going back to an office?

Sound off, and listen to the whole interview with David, here.
