This is What a Virtual Worker Looks Like
Posted by gansie on July 2, 2010
When BPW Foundation decided to move to a virtual office environment I was at first nervous. I live in a one bedroom with my boyfriend. There’s no spare space for a proper office. But as I thought more about what “virtual” meant, as in I could work anywhere–not just the tiny desk that sits 2 feet away from my bed–I started to cling to the idea.
I’m down the Jersey Shore this weekend for the 4th. Because of our flexible, virtual policies I left Thursday night to come here. Today I’ll be on and off line, as I’ve finished most of my week’s work before the drive. I imagine today as checking emails, laying on the sand, sending my year end budget predictions, jumping in the ocean and sending out a thank you letter.
This is what a virtual worker looks like.
