I don’t like the phrase ‘remote work’.
‘Remote’ has too many negative connotations.
How can we describe remote work more accurately?
There are plenty of alternative choices:
These are the most popular ways to describe working away from the office as ranked by search volume.
But they don’t feel quite right either.
Telework? In 2017? Seriously? (Maybe it was relevant in 1997).
It’s a bit presumptuous to decide on a new term to describe a way of working, but that’s what we’ve gone ahead and done.
It’s a bit more reflective of the reality of the working practices that remote work / virtual work / telework / distributed work are attempting to describe.
Not all ‘remote’ work is remote all the time.
Not all ‘telework’ is done over the phone.
‘Distributed teams’ aren’t distributed all of the time.
‘Anywhere work’, though, covers it all.
Sometimes at home.
Sometimes in an office.
Sometimes with team members.
Anywhere work is how we’ll work in future: when we want, how we want, anywhere.
What’s nicer ‘See you remotely’ or ‘See you anywhere’?
It might take a little while to catch on but we’re sticking with it.
Join us anywhere, if you’d like. We’d love to have you with us.
