Do you work out of coffee shops, hotels, airports and your home every bit as much as the office? If you work this way you are working remotely or workshifting. What are the benefits and downsides to working remotely? What kinds of tools and resources do you need for successful workshifting? Join Alan Kearns as he interviews Justin Levy and Eric Bensley, two marketing experts at the forefront of the workshifting movement.
“Workshifting is a state of mind, and for it to succeed, managers and employees need to change how they view productivity, time, loyalty and work-life balance. But technology can help, too. I like to say that technology has allowed us to get to the point where workshifting is possible (thanks, Internet).” (Justin Levy)
Justin Levy spends most of his time mobile, workshifting from a multitude of various locations. Justin is able to successfully run multiple companies from these locations. He enjoys exploring how technology and productivity intersect. He runs New Marketing Labs, along with Chris Brogan, writes over at justinrlevy.com, and can be found hanging out on Twitter and Facebook. He is the author of Facebook Marketing:Designing Your Next Marketing Campaign.
Eric Bensley works in Product Marketing for Citrix Go To Meeting. He Web commutes and also works with geographically distributed partners on a daily basis. He’s an advocate for workshifting, results-based work environments and the anywhere office. On the job Eric works on brand development, customer & competitive research, market growth strategies, launch planning, pricing, packaging and positioning. He has a degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara in Business Economics.
