    Surviving Disaster and Embracing Telecommuting

    Hurricane Sandy forced many of the country's largest businesses to close their doors. For the winning companies which embrace telecommuting and all of the benefits it brings, it was no day off though.


    You might think that power outages and transportation closures might make it difficult for most companies to make it a work day as usual. For the smart companies who regularly employ staff with flexible work schedules, this week was no problem.

    Is Yahoo's CEO Taking Telecommuting Back in Time?

    in Work

    The new Yahoo CEO has now put a ban on telecommuting and has required that all Yahoo employees starting June of 2013, be back on site to work out of the megaplex home office.
    We have struggled for many years to support the cause and value of flexible hours and telecommuting staff, and this very well may be setting back the cause of many years of work. It’s definitely a very Retro Move!
    So has Marissa Mayer essentially started a trend to put to end the practice of telecommuting? And what would that mean to all of the working mothers, single parents, and caregivers to ailing family members who also need good jobs and depend on workplace flexibility?
    Join Flex Hour Jobs as we discuss the topic of the week touching every remote worker all over the world.

    How to Successfully Work from Anywhere

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, October 1, 2014, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET.


    Last week we talked about empowering HR and the hiring process, and this week we’re going to talk about empowering your world of work wherever you work.


    Because we can work from anywhere today. Some of us anyway. While there are no definitive statistics, last year a CBS News poll revealed that 24% of workers telecommuted regularly for their jobs. (How many in their pajamas you ask? Probably more than you think.)


    Could be more, could be less, but the reality is that many more full-time, part-time and contract workers are not only working from home, they’re successfully working from anywhere.


    Whatever the remote mix, how to do it right, what to consider before you make the “workshift,” and what technologies you’ll need to perform better, all need to be addressed.


    Today’s realities include: what it takes to run a meeting from a coffee shop, managing a Skype call from 35,000 feet aboard an airplane, and juggling the demands of a domestic situation while you’re working at home all day. 


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-creators and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about how to successfully work from anywhere with this week’s guest: Simon Salt, six-year workshifting veteran, photographer, writer, speaker and author of Out of Office.


    Thank you to our sponsors and partners: RIVS, GreatRated! of Great Place to Work, TalentWise, Dice, SAP/SuccessFactors, IBM, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Fisher Vista and HRmarketer Insight.
