    Ever since COVID-19 emerged as a global pandemic in March 2020, remote work has become the norm for many companies. This guide from Glazer, CEO of global marketing agency Acceleration Partners, offers advice for how to succeed as a remotely working employee and as a company running a remote operation. One of the key attributes Glazer lists for remote employees is increased productivity. In-person office environments are full of workflow-inhibiting distractions. Besides eliminating these, working from home avoids an often stressful commute. The key to employee success is balancing workflow and setting physical boundaries (maintaining a designated office space). Glazer blends his own company's experience in assessing positives and negatives of remote work, which aids in the book's message. The organization's success lay with a look inward at its culture and principles. Management needs to keep an eye on worker productivity, while also providing worker autonomy and reaching out to employees with effective communication. Glazer provides a positive outlook for a onetime trend fast becoming commonplace reality in this handy guide. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
