Out of Office

Charlie Warzel

Overview

During the COVID-19 pandemic, millions were sent home to work. For many, the lines between professional and private life disintegrated instantly.

Many people worked weekends and nights, chained to their desks or dining tables, unable to tell where employment began and their identities as individuals, parents, or spouses ended. Instead of improving work-life balance, remote work was implemented without guidance and led employees to overwork themselves — at times leading them to burnout.

In Out of Office: The Big Problem and Bigger Promise of Working from Home, journalists, culture, and tech writers, and remote workers Anne Helen Petersen and Charlie Warzel use case studies and research to reinvent the future of remote work and its potential to change society for the better.

"The future of office work has to be guided by a new, genuine form of flexibility in which the work, not the workers themselves, becomes even more malleable."

Anne Helen Petersen and Charlie Warzel
