Garden offices for CEOs

We usually think of shedworkers as being one-person bands, but that's becoming quite an outdated concept now as hybrid working really kicks in and garden offices have become a normal feature of working life. So it's also important to recognise that employers as much as employees have need of a decent shedworking space. There's an interesting article on just this subejct at Raconteur called 'Remote control: the rise of the hybrid CEO'. Here's a snippet:

Anita Williams Woolley, professor of organizational behaviour and theory at Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business, agrees. “You can still be a role model if employees have access to you,” she says. “You don’t need to be in a specific physical location. If companies are committed to hybrid working, then it can be more effective if CEOs are also working in the same fashion. It will ensure that all systems and processes work well. It could be an issue for some employees if they see their boss working remotely and they have been denied the option to do so themselves.”

Well worth a read.
