I think the only positive thing one can say about the weather today is that it spawned some onomatopoeic gold. With the best will in the world, the weather in Dublin today is the kind of weather that makes you want to scurry back to bed. As I cycled down the hill from Crumlin to the Digital Hub I thought to myself, “Technology is great and all but it can do nothing about this!” But, of course, that’s exactly where technology and specifically the internet does come into it’s own. I could be writing this from my bed for all you know: all hail the Internet for giving us back our lives. (FYI CEO I’m in the office!)
Of course, the right livelihood is needed to make the best use of this flexibility. One of our newest members, Flexitimers.com, is hoping to help people achieve this flexibility by attracting employers who need flexible professionals and professionals who want flexible employers. Having recently researched the issue of employee motivation it is well documented that trust and autonomy are two of the greatest motivators. We all know that feeling: nothing makes you cease up faster than the feeling that somebody is looking over your shoulder.
