At the end of 2020, Rhymer Rigby addressed how workers could deal with some of their colleagues’ annoying habits. In 2021, discussion of remote-work relationships continues with Rigby, a regular FM magazine contributor and the author of the book The Careerist: Over 100 Ways to Get Ahead at Work. In this episode, Rigby is prompted to revisit a comment made in the summer about why Zoom or other video meeting platforms suddenly became the default for having a discussion.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • The reasons you should be more communicative with your manager in a remote-work setting.
  • How expectations should be set around productivity and availability.
  • Why our “fight or flight” instinct can kick in during a video meeting.
  • The reason some online meetings can feel like a “professional zoo”.
