Future of Work: ‘The office as we know it is over,’ Airbnb CEO says

From The Washington Post | Tech At Work by Danielle Abril

The last two years of the pandemic has led Airbnb’s chief to make a radical change to the way 6,000 employees at his company work, and it’s nothing like the past.

“The office as we know it is over,” Brian Chesky said in an exclusive interview with The Washington Post. “It is an anachronistic form factor from a pre-digital age.”

Chesky earlier this month unveiled policies that allow employees to live and work from anywhere in their country without a change in pay. They also can work in more than 170 countries for up to 90 days in each location. To help more people take trips to work abroad, Airbnb is working with about 20 countries to remove some of the red tape around securing a temporary work visa.
