Working from home – is it really the future of work?


We all know letting people work remotely can make them happier. Technology is making it easier for more people to add ‘WFH’ (Working From Home) to their instant messenger status at work. But is it a realistic idea for people working in corporations?

IBM doesn’t seem to think so. Known as the biggest pioneer of remote working, the company recently told tens of thousands of staff that they need to start working in real offices. IBM has seen a consistent decline in revenue recently and Yahoo did the same thing not long ago when it decided staff needed to collaborate more in real life.

Bloomberg’s Rebecca Greenfield and Francesca Levy meet tech journalist Christopher Mims to discuss whether working from really is the future of work.
