Does the Future of Work Have Pants?

HRExaminer Weekly Edition v4.36 September 20, 2013

An all-virtual team scattered throughout the globe is a pretty good example of the Future of Work. At outfits like WordPress, it's old news. What is that like? How does it work (or not work)? What role does HR play in this story? In his recently published book, The Year Without Pants, author and speaker Scott Berkun provides insight into these questions by chronicling his two year journey at WordPress as a team leader. In this week's feature, No Pants Works, Heather Bussing reviews Scott's book and examines how companies like WordPress are navigating the traditional outputs of a company (namely profit and growth) without anything we’d recognize as an HR team or practice. Enjoy.
