  •   WHERE I'M WORKING: MY COOL LOFT APARTMENT NEAR BOULDER, COLORADO - For the past five years working with Bellow Press, I have written hundreds of stories about workspace design.

  •   REMOTE WORKING: REPORT SHOWS WORK IS CHANGING BEFORE OUR EYES (AND LIKELY WON'T CHANGE BACK) - In a tracking survey of global corporate real estate professionals at large corporations conducted by CoreNet Global, the amount of respondents who say they now support a corporate mandate for remote work has nearly doubled in two weeks to 97 percent from 56 percent two weeks ago.

  •   WHEN WORKING FROM HOME, PHYSICAL TRANSITION IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG - We began 2020 with the same unbridled optimism with which most new years start. Then our world was unexpectedly turned upside down by coronavirus. In a matter of weeks, we went from a thriving economy, and record low unemployment and vacancy rates in the U.S., to a world nearly shut down by a global pandemic.
  •   IN UNCERTAIN TIMES, EASE YOUR EMOTIONS AT WORK AND AT HOME - Living in Spain and being hundreds of miles away from my family has made it harder, especially after they imposed the national lockdown.
  •   PRODUCT MATTER - A review of some products that help make working at home a bit easier and more productive.
  •   INSIGHTS FROM 140+ REMOTE TEAMS AND COMPANIES ON HOW TO INTEGRATE, MANAGE AND COMMUNICATE REMOTELY - To help contain the spread of COVID-19, remote work has been advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and companies worldwide across all industries and sizes have implemented working from home as a temporary workplace policy.
