This week, Tayo welcomes Liam Martin to talk about managing in remote workplaces, why remote work is the new norm, and how you can work remotely too. As the author of Running Remote, Liam has spent years studying the ins and outs of remote work, process design hiring, and inclusivity, and today Liam and Tayo talk about just that. Prior to March 2020, there were a mere 5 million digital nomads. Now that number reaches just over 50 million.
People like Martin are starting to realize that remote work and asynchronicity improves openness and reflects the world’s ever changing value systems. Ideas reign supreme now that your race, sex, and gender no longer play a role in whether your hired or not. We need to stop judging others based on their exterior, and remote work is one of the wonderful ways that we can make that happen. That’s not to say that remote work doesn't have its downsides. In adults over the age of 25, most socialization takes place in office. And now that there is no office, it becomes increasingly more difficult to meet people. That being said, Liam found that remote work has introduced this notion of choice in the workforce. It’s no secret that many adults abandon their childhood aspirations for a career path that’s a little more realistic. Now that we get to decide our environments, however, it's up to us to intentionally create spaces that maximize the fullness of self.
