That is SO last week

Last week, Fast Company published its New Rules of Work.  These rules reflect the many ways that technology has affected how we work.  Workers no longer commute, but work remotely in their homes or coffee shops. The traditional 9-to-5 work schedule has been replaced by being on call 24/7, and an employee’s work and personal life are no longer separate.  The magazine commented that “Work is increasingly both everywhere and nowhere.”  Technology can do that, for better or worse. Query whether the law, or even standard HR practices, can keep up.
