Would you rather work from home or go into the office?

But others say remote work fosters miscommunication and disconnection. Many telecommuters miss the camaraderie of the office. Do you prefer working from home or going into the office? 👩🏾‍💻 👨🏻‍💼

“If you want innovation, then you need interaction,” he said. “If you want productivity, then you want people working from home.”

 “Some of the best decisions and insights come from hallway and cafeteria discussions, meeting new people and impromptu team meetings. Speed and quality are often sacrificed when we work from home.”
