601: Navigating Remote Work with Chase Warrington

In today's episode of the As Told by Nomads Podcast, join me and Chase Warrington as we talk about the today and the future of remote work. At a very young age, Chase already knew that he had an unusual fascination for foreign places and cultures. However, he didn't know how to mesh that with his career and work. With progression, Chase learned how to make that fascination his core, which eventually led him to become the head of remote at Doist. Today, Chase talks about Doist and the apps they created, why remote work works, and how remote work champions more than just employees and productivity.

Imagine What (More) Remote Work Can Do

If we're in a remote work environment, on a micro-level, there are a lot of positive impacts that are just undeniable. Compared to working in a traditional office, no one needs to commute to remote work. Every day, a commute takes up a significant amount of time and energy from a person.

Today, remote companies have also made it customary to employ diverse and global teams. For example, a remote company in America can have employees from Europe, Antarctica, and Asia. That gives an unprecedented chance to those with meager job opportunities in countries with high unemployment rates. If those impacts are scaled on a more global level, imagine what remote work can do for nature and impoverished countries with untapped pools of world-class talents.
