Remote Work Improves When Companies Share their Values with Employees

What factors do you think would help a remote worker be most productive?

New research from #CBSProf Vanessa Burbano and Bennett Chiles found that remote working improves when employers communicate their values to their employees. On the other hand, employer surveillance produced a negative end result.

If the company simultaneously ups the monitoring of the workers and they know they’re being watched, though, the benefits tied to communication of values are negated.”
