Mobile work became the norm in 2020. Jobs we never thought were possible from home, like internal medicine, quickly found a way to work on Zoom. Now, with the end of the pandemic in sight, a lot of organizations are resigned to slinking back into their offices. Is this a mistake?
Matt Mullenweg, one of the founders of WordPress and its now parent company, Automatic, certainly thinks so. Mullenweg has been banging the “distributed work” drum for years now, but until the pandemic not many leaders paid attention. His company has been fully distributed for a long time and is now doing better than ever. He, as you’d probably imagine, attributes much of that success to the distributed model.
