“I feel very close to my DWG colleagues. In fact, I feel closer to some of my DWG colleagues than the people I used to sit next to in other organizations where I was physically present all of the time.”
– Louise Kennedy, DWG
Digital Workplace Group (DWG) has no offices. There were offices in London and New York until seven years ago – but people didn’t seem to choose to work there very often, so they were closed. Today, there are about 100 people across Europe and North America, who work anywhere and everywhere for the organization. Many find this curious and often ask questions such as “How do you do that?”, “Don’t you miss each other?” and “What’s it really like?”.
In this episode, Paul interviews two of his colleagues, Nancy Goebel and Louise Kennedy, about what it’s like to work for DWG and to work remotely.
Together, they discuss the culture and how it differs from working elsewhere, what the challenges can be in working remotely, and what large corporates can learn from this small organization.
Please note that this interview was recorded in February, before coronavirus was declared a pandemic.
