Flexibility. For me, I need a balance between home and coworking settings. Sometimes I need to be at home and shut everything out and focus, and sometimes I really need the energy and inspiration of working near others.
I’ve been remote for over 10 years, first convincing my boss to let me try it out for 6 months after I moved out of LA and down to San Diego, and didn’t want to lose my job. Since then, as Head of Publishing & Editorial I grew a remote publishing department to 75 staff.
Flexibility for everyone is very important, especially for people with kids but not limited to. I like having flexibility myself since running errands or going to the doctor becomes much easier.
