Back in 2013, Basecamp's Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson published Remote (Office Not Required), a beautifully concise insight into how remote working had shaped their business.

Seven years and one global pandemic later, remote working has become a lot more common. But are we making the most of the opportunities that remote working presents?

In this edition of The GP Book Club, Ross G is joined by Gemma and Owen to share their thoughts.

We discuss:

  • a brief overview of the book's main points
  • the advantages of remote work for businesses and employees
  • how the way organisations communicate during the pandemic is shaping reactions to remote working.
