Description

Is remote work possible in design? How can designers transition to remote work, and what are the pros and cons of doing so? In this episode, we cover the statistics around remote work, the potential pitfalls for companies and employees, the types of individuals that do best with remote work, and why it’s so important for companies to be open to this growing movement.

"Aetna has 14,500 out of 35,000 employees that work remote. When they switched to this, they shed 2.7 million square feet of office space, which saved them around $78 million. American Express did the same thing and reported an annual savings of $15 million, just thanks to their remote worker options." — Austin at 24:31
