Rolling with MB&A Podcast – The Remote Work Revolution

The Remote Work Revolution: Navigating the Ups and Downs

A closer look into how to succeed in a remote work environment. 

The tides of work have changed, and the remote work revolution is at the forefront.  Thanks to the rollercoaster that was the COVID-19 pandemic, remote work went from a buzzword to a game-changer, transforming the way companies tackle their 9-5. 

Now, close your eyes and try to remember what it was like back in March 2020.  COVID hit, and suddenly, our offices turned into our living rooms. Some of us were figuring out how to be productive from our makeshift home offices (bedrooms), wondering when this whole “working from home” gig would end. But for others, like Joshua Millsaps, CEO, and founder of MB&A, remote work has been a company standard well before the pandemic upended our office routine.  Josh realized a gap between the talent he wanted and the tech industry and remote work became a strategic move to bridge that gap.

As you can hear in the podcast, remote work isn’t just about casual Fridays every day (though, that’s a perk.) There are many advantages for both management and employees when it comes to remote work.

  • Flexibility: Flexibility to design work hours around your life. 
  • Responsiveness: Virtual networks keep the communication flowing, no matter where you are. 
  • Higher Productivity: It’s about quality and efficiency; not just punching the clock.
  • Broader Talent Pool:  No more hiring your neighbor’s cousin; go global for the best-specialized talent.



However, in order to succeed with remote work, it’s not just about where you work but how you work it. You need more than just a comfy chair and reliable wifi. Systems must be put in place for workflow and a focus on outcomes.  When it comes to figuring out how to handle this whole remote work gig and measure productivity for success, dive deep into your purpose and values.  That’s your North Star for creating outcomes that really matter and setting the stage for success.

Let’s break it down: lay out clear expectations, open up those communication channels, and make sure your remote team has all the tools and resources they need.  Additionally, companies should focus on outcomes. It’s not about how long the team stares at their screens; it’s about what they bring to the table. This shift forces managers to become better leaders, fostering a culture of trust and accountability. 

In summary, remote work isn’t just about swapping your desk for a home office; it’s a whole new way of managing things. MB&A’s journey into remote work highlights the perks of tapping into top-notch talent from anywhere, kicking up productivity, and getting everyone to be more responsive.  However, the transition is not without its challenges, particularly in terms of management and productivity evaluation. The Remote Work Revolution is no fleeting trend; it’s the future. Companies that embrace it, that figure out the tricks to make it work and zero in on results, are the ones set to thrive in the business landscape as it evolves.
