Effective Remote and Asynchronous Work with Kaleem Clarkson and Tammy Bjelland
Effective Remote and Asynchronous Work

In this podcast Shane Hastie, Lead Editor for Culture & Methods spoke with two of the speakers from the Remote Teams track at QCon Plus, Kaleem Clarkson & Tammy Bjelland, about the dangers of “hybrid” working environments and what is needed to make flexible remote and asynchronous working effective. 



Key Takeaways

  • Decisions about returning to the office and employee experience need to be made in consultation with the people impacted
  • “Hybrid” is an almost meaningless term – consider rather the ideas around flexible workplaces
  • Effective flexible working involves being very intentional and strategic about designing processes to enable inclusion of every single employee regardless of where they're located
  • Relying on synchronous communication for every single important thing that you're doing in the business just means that you are slowing your business down
