Having the freedom to occasionally work outside the office and have more autonomy over your work hours may sound like an absolute slam-dunk. But is the future of flexible working all it’s cracked up to be?
The simple answer is, yes.
But as with anything in this life, that comes with caveats.

Four times last week I looked to see if colleagues were in the office and at their desks so I could ask them a question face-to-face. The weird part of this is that, in these instances, we communicate better via text (email, Slack, Sametime, text message) because their English is only slightly better than my Japanese. There was no benefit to talking in real-time.
It’s a bad old habit from my office working days into which I find myself falling.
