Do you do your best work in the office? This provocative TED Talk from Jason Fried, the creator of the collaboration software, 37signals, argues that employees do their best, most productive work away from the distractions of an office. Without giving away the video, Fried believes that there are two main distractions in the office that are the most damaging to productivity.
This video speaks for flexible work schedules rather loudly. Instead of confining employees to 9 to 5 schedules, productivity spikes when you remove the rigid structure of a work day. So hats off to Jason for speaking the truth behind the distracting office, and why its so important to find our own workspace haven.
