    Thanks for your points. Very well made. Here at Abodoo we have experts who have faced the issues you mention and have learned the lessons of remote working over a 7 year period and we want to share our learning with other organisations. Remote working is good for the employee, the employer but also society as well. Thats why we are so passionate about our 'movement' #1

    As experienced in IT, also specifically in early flexible/remote working and teleconferencing, mid nineties of last century, we were working on a number of possibilities for a large international. Since IT's focus is on strategic gain, in this instance reducing costs, it may become understandable that if you prevent half the staff from traveling, you are talking about millions of immediate savings that partially can be invested elsewhere. WinWin. By fully implementing access from anywhere tot the networks, mind you, this is pre LAN/WAN era, telephone lines only, we had to think very smart and achieved to prevent over 50% of the expats to even travel more than half.

    Three elements of utmost importance to consider...

    1. Security
    Remote working will pose a closer eye and investment in security and control
    2. Not every discipline is suited for remote/flexible working
    Think production work, think transport, think factory work, think stock and shop work. It basically is limited to smaller and free disciplines and jobs as well as office automation for the more flex disciplines such as traveling representatives, IT staff, Internet developers.
    3. Not every person is suited for remote or flex working
    Not everyone has self discipline or stability or perhaps unstable situation to work remote. Working remote partially can be monitored but we know out of experience that it may take a very long time to detect some simply don't have 'it' bud are real masters in hiding that.

    #6 Thank you.

    There is value in going off-site. For example, teams can avoid distractions and really focus. Off-site does not always have to mean an expensive resort. Go to a branch office, exchange locations with a supplier, use the facilities at a local library, college, or university campus. When appropriate, it's great to have the fun factor but it's not always appropriate:

    Outstanding post-@Anne 🐝 Thornley-Brown, MBA. I am a fan of team building and during my career, I have been on many a team. My advice, which you mentioned, keep the team building at work. I feel it's not a good idea to let it spill over into - outside of the workplace activities.

    #4 Yes I am being kind. You should see the section on paintball. (I probably should run that as an excerpt but the last time I addressed that topic I was nearly tarred, feathered and run out of town.) From previous conversations, you know how I feel about the axe throwing and mud obstacle courses.

    This true. I go into a lot more detail about this in another section of the e-book. "And the other reality is that not everybody plays fair at those "recreational events" because of age or infirmities or whatever. There are people who are just not able to play volleyball or kickball and "coaching" the real team is not really active participation."

    Very nicely framed up. But you also know you are being pretty kind to those Team Bonding things that really have no measurable value and which sometimes undermine the understanding that real team building needs to occur. One can get the old, "Well our last team building event at Dave and Busters did not go so well" or, "I did not see any changes as a result of our whole day of teambuilding at paintball / the go-kart track."

    And the other reality is that not everybody plays fair at those "recreational events" because of age or infirmities or whatever. There are people who are just not able to play volleyball or kickball and "coaching" the real team is not really active participation.

    Your framework is quite good. And we need these kinds of efforts to generate impacts, if they are to be repeated in a meaningful way.

    #8 In terms of resources definitely not fair but in terms of practice, all I am saying is that asking for personal information after the invitation is not something I am cool with whether it is Deloitte or HR Magazine. What Katie Jacobs provided is "DOWNLOAD OUR FREE REPORT" but it is not free. If she wrote SIGN UP FOR OUR FREE REPORT I have no problem. It is not about David & Goliath here, it is my own memories of bait & switch. If that is the engagement then in terms of engagement that is for me the irony here. I don't find that engaging.

    #4 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit I hear what you are saying but I don't think it's fair to compare the resources that a company like Deloitte has with HR Magazine. For HR Magazine those articles are a core business strategy and as you pointed out a vital marketing strategy to identify potential customers. Deloitte just likes to demonstrate their expertise and capapilities. David vs Goliath

    There is one thing that irks me about HR Magazine, that its partner We Thrive needs our email in order to share this report.. My reaction, if that is what We Thrive call engagement, I am not that engaged with these kind of marketing tactics.

    Now compare that with Deloitte writing a report about engagement being "irresistible", even though this article is from 2015, I can both read the article and they provide a download button, which provides the option to save a PDF. In this case here that is a very engaging thing to do, so who do I trust and support when it comes to who engaged better?

    Deloitte vs. We Thrive 6-0, 6-0, 6-0
