Podcast: Chasing Productivity & Creativity in WFH
JP Morgan has observed reduced productivity and creativity among employees working from home (WFH). CEO Jamie Dimon notes that younger employees are disproportionally affected, particularly on Mondays and Fridays. This leads us to question how productivity is measured at companies like JP Morgan: are they measuring output or are they measuring busyness?
In this episode we unpack Dimon’s concerns and discuss options for improving WFH productivity and creativity (or in Dimon’s terms, “creative combustion”). These include tips for restoring structure to the unstructured world of remote work and evaluating performance based on employees’ output rather than the time spent producing it.
