Automattic, one of the world's largest distributed companies, shares its secrets to remote collaboration
The opportunities for colleagues to interact socially and offer input into company operations have shifted in the wake of new systems. Digital communication tools like Slack are evolving the standard of emails while holographic conferences are replacing face-to-face meetings. In consequence, employers are able to attract top talent from anywhere in the world, and highly-skilled employees are looking to new opportunities within organizations that offer flexible workplaces or hours.
The new Nomad Class Debrief from PSFK Labs explores the proliferation of new services that enable distributed teams to succeed, as well as their ensuing impact on the organizations that depend on them. Alongside the launch of the new report, PSFK sits down with one of the largest distributed companies in the world, Automattic, to learn more about what the rise of interconnectedness means for them.
