Infographic: Remote Worker Bill of Rights Version 2.0

Updated: Feb 9, 2022



Over the many years of being a remote worker, I have experienced the highs and lows of what most knowledge workers will be experiencing as we continue to press on to becoming a remote workforce. Many of the challenges I faced have been centered around the unequal treatment that is sometimes unintentionally imposed by organizational leaders. As I reflected on those challenges and the future, I drafted a Remote Worker Bill of Rights. It is meant to bring to light some of those shortcomings and injustices faced by remote workers. Its purpose is to make the transition for this new phase of work a successful one for all.

This undermines the value of co-location. We all know that co-location works better than remote. While #2 is correct with its focus on value, there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that higher performing teams are co-located. I cannot think of a time when a low performing team provided more value than a high performing one.

I do not think it is undermining co-location it is elevating remote to being on par with it. I don't mean to be flippant but.... at one time we thought the earth was the center of our solar system then mindsets and technology changed and proved otherwise.


The Googles Aristotle project didn't even put co-location in the 5 top factors of why some teams succeed and others fail. Co-location is important just not as important as Psychological safety, Dependability, Structure and clarity, Meaning and Impact


They also discovered which variables were not significantly connected with team effectiveness at Google:

Colocation of teammates (sitting together in the same office), Consensus-driven decision making, Extroversion of team members, Individual performance of team members,…

In #9, it should be "not to be used" rather than "not be used". And, decision-making is a compound adjective in my book, although I realize usage varies. I have decades of remote working experience, and this is a complex topic whose circumstances vary significantly. I get the frustration and the desire for fair treatment, but it will have more impact if the tone is less adversarial. I would prefer "Remote Work Manifesto" to Bill of Rights, and make it more even handed. I have not been disrespected as a remote worker, nor does my company disrespect our own team members. Most of our people say they've never had a better job, in fact. Good luck with this initiative, it…
