Hear from our internal experts

"While working remotely consistency is important. Consistency in doing what makes you recharge and feel good. Whether it’s sports, being with your loved ones, other hobbies or just recharging while sleeping. Block time for these things to happen on a regular basis."

Jimena Mondragon

VP Marketing & Communication, WorkMotion

“A lot of people think that focusing means to say “yes” to certain things but in reality it also means to say “no” to a lot of other things that are thrown your way. As well as we have to prioritise it’s equally or even more important to de-prioritise. Deprioritise what is defocusing you from your OKR projects."

Bastian Eichler

VP Product, WorkMotion

“It doesn’t matter where the person sits. What matters is who you want working in your company, regardless of location.”

Lema Wahedi

VP People, WorkMotion

“Don’t forget: we are just at the beginning of a massive cultural shift in the way of how we work. This shift might be as big as for example the industrial revolution when people moved from the fields into the factory. Be open to this new kind of work. We are all learning together and we all thrive to make things better in a remote work environment.”

Carsten Lebtig
