WORK FROM HOME #WFH
The Survey of Working Arrangements and Attitudes was founded in May 2020 in response to the dramatic impact of COVID-19 on working arrangements. It is a monthly online survey run jointly by the University of Chicago, ITAM, MIT, and Stanford University.
Nick Bloom, Stanford Economics Professor, Research on Working From Home, co-founder tweeted
How is the 70 minutes saved each day by #WFH (60 from less commuting, 10 from less personal grooming) used? About 30 minutes (40%) on work, 25 minutes (35%) on leisure, and 15 minutes (25%) on chores and childcare.
Whether the meeting is virtual or in-person, capturing notes (action items and updates) is important! Here are tips on how to make this happen.
