Most people say they want to work remotely but DON'T know the challenges remote workers face. 🙄

Let's talk about the various CHALLENGES we face in NIGERIA as REMOTE WORKERS. Shall we? 🤔

1. One challenge remote workers in Nigeria face is limited access to a reliable internet connection.
The internet infrastructure in Nigeria is not as well developed as in some other countries, which can make it difficult for remote workers to stay connected and productive. 🙃
I nearly missed an assessment two days ago due to MTN's poor network coverage. 😑😒
Just last night, I was having an interview with a prospective employer on Microsoft teams, and I didn't even hear a quarter of what they said. I was only using my gut to flow with them.

My 2022 Year in Review and look ahead to 2023…

An unusual year of ups + downs that took my research agenda to unexpected places.

Yet the result was invaluable + ended up taking my work to useful new places.

A longish 🧵 on #cio #cloud #digitaltransformation #FutureOfWork. 1/x
First up is my detailed analysis titled “The #Cloud Reaches an Inflection Point for the #CIO in 2022.” It remains very pertinent reading.

Written as the cloud industry reached an early maturity point, it highlighted a top hot issue: Complexity…

Then I took a deep dive into #decentralization, perhaps one of the most significant generational revolutions of our era:

What is #Web3 and Why It Matters…

Regardless of what happens to #crypto, the underlying tech esp. #blockchain, is an inflection.

Thread on office vacancy

The pandemic changed the way we live and work. No longer must we all be in the same physical location to collaborate. This radical shift (or, as we economists like to say, "exogenous shock") has fundamentally changed the way we use office space. 1/n
The sharp drop in demand for office space has resulted in more underutilized office space across the country than is fully captured by traditional metrics such as vacancy or availability rates. 2/n
How best, then, to capture the extent of this emptiness? To help with this, First American's econ team developed a new metric, called "Underutilized Shadow Vacancy" (or U-Shadow vacancy) ... 3/n

Thread on #office buildings:

Office remains the asset class with the least certain future. However, not all office space is created equal. For example, life science office is in a steadier position since lab work generally can't be performed remotely. 1/n
Given persistent demand to lease life science office space, occupancy rates in this specialized asset class remain quite high. As one data point, Alexandria Real Estate, a publicly traded REIT that specializes in life science office space, reported... 2/n

One way to think about the role of lease timing in return-to-office plans:

Imagine two peer firms with 10-year large-footprint leases, one that expires in December 2029 and the other in December 2022. Which one would you expect to put more effort behind mandatory in-person work?
Relevant background:

—Subleasing would be at a loss, if feasible at all
—Managers & owners reportedly favor in-person work more than employees
—In theory, remote work (still) involves more unknowns than in-office c. 2019*

*No one seems to think 2019-level face time is possible

Companies promoting the remote work culture maybe has an idea to become the next Sherlock Holmes

A Thread 🧵
Why? They are up to spying and monitoring the employees working remotely. This is to ensure productivity, or is it?
Let your employees be productive. And by productive I don't mean working all day. Productive means they give their best work.

During forced #remotework, employees who perceived greater job control reported lower exhaustion and higher work-life balance, but this was conditional on their segmentation preferences.
Let’s unpack this a little. First, the main terms:

1) Job control
The job demands-control (#JDC) theory of stress (Karasek, 1979) posits that when employees are subjected to a high level of job demands at work it increases strain on employees,
but job control (autonomy) can buffer the relationship between job demands and strain. That is, even when job demands are challenging (e.g., in the COVID-19 context), high control over one’s job reduces strain and can diminish the negative outcomes of high job demands.

Hello everyone. Since this seemed to be one of the most urgent requests from most people that DM'd me, here is a small 🧵 on how to find #remotework job opportunities while you are based in #SriLanka.
Firstly, when it comes to looking for remote working #jobs it isn't as straightforward as finding a traditional job. Your usual sources such as LinkedIn may not be the best fit for finding remote jobs. What I have seen is that the remote working community is very tight-knit 👊
Remote jobs and opportunities seem to be available via word of mouth and recommendations. You need to understand that hiring remote for a company is very risky. The company does not have the safety nets of having a physical employee they can see. So credibility is EVERYTHING.

Today's January #JobsReport is significantly stronger than expected. Job gains totaled 467,000 even as Omicron drove record high COVID cases. Unemployment ticked up to 4.0%

Huge payroll revisions too: Dec up to 510,000 from 199,000. Nov up to 647,000 from 249,000.

Charts will be slow this morning, but 2 more things:
-Labor force participation ticks up to 62.2%
-Weekly hours were down 0.2 hrs, employee absence due to illness up to 3.6 million, a new record high; showing Omicron had impact even if it reverse slow jobs growth

#JobsReport 2/
Slipping in a few charts while I can: we added 467,000 jobs in January. In hindsight, the end of year slowdown no longer looks as dramatic. Despite Omicron now *and* Delta in the late fall, jobs growth stayed surprisingly strong.
