Working from hereFor these reasons, we should re-brand WFH as "Working From Here" It frames the work experience from the user's (employee's) perspective, enabling them to imagine any place as a possible place from which to conduct business, whether that's the office or an office alternative like Wework, home itself, a third place like Starbucks, the car (once fully autonomous of course), a plane, a hotel room or bar, or even the customer's location!
