The workplace has changed. From the rise of remote work to the decline of open office plans to social distancing and new technology tools, we’re all adjusting to new realities during the coronavirus pandemic. And all this change is impacting the people, productivity, and profits of many companies—for better and for worse. If anyone knows how to make sense of the situation, it’s Jason Fried. As co-founder and CEO of remote software company Basecamp, Fried has been preaching the advantages of remote work for more than 20 years.
Inc. editor-at-large Tom Foster will discuss with Fried the state of both the conventional and remote workplace. As best-selling author of several books including Rework, Remote: Office Not Required, and It Doesn’t Have to Be Crazy at Work, Fried will share his thoughts on how the current crisis is exposing some of the drawbacks of conventional workplace and startup practices—and the opportunities of thinking unconventionally.
