I’ve been a part-time workshifter for six years. My favorite things about working from anywhere are what I save by not commuting every day, the extra family time and the ability to be productive when I feel inspired, whether it’s 9 a.m. or 9 p.m. While I enjoy a few days at home and a […]

Committing your company to a workshifting strategy means going beyond the current trends of the day.

Working from home certainly comes with its advantages, but it’s not always easy finding a work-life balance when your office is in the same place you are meant to feel most comfortable.

But living and working in the same space presents its own problems. In this video for WorkSnug, I suggest that homeworkers should […]

In his book “Business @ the Speed of Thought,” Bill Gates compared communication between the individuals and teams that compose a business with the nervous system of the human body.

Hello, fellow workshifters! As a Ph.D. student at Loughborough University in England, I’m accustomed to working from home, libraries, cafés and trains. But workshifting — specifically how telework impacts people and organisations — is also the focus of my studies.
