I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to design digital workplaces or “offices in the cloud.” These environments enable companies to allow flexible and remote working for their teams. I also teach the digital literacy, fluency, communication and collaboration skills needed to work in these modern technology-rich workplaces.

A few weeks ago this piece appeared on CNN These employers don’t care when or where you work and in it there are some great examples of what Results Only Work Environments (ROWE’s) look like in practice.

Anywhere work has some serious advantages! For example:

“Real estate costs can drop significantly in a ROWE since people have let go of work as a place you ‘go,’ but rather as something you ‘do.’”— Jody Thompson

Leadership teams that design these work environments as a priority will help their organizations evolve into modern digital workplaces and reap all the rewards associated with these new environments.
