For years, our team spent our days in a cluttered, cramped office space in New York. It was the heart of our operations and what kept us on track, or so we thought.
We were hunting for a larger space to accommodate a growing team when the pandemic hit and everyone scattered to their home offices. We expected a slowdown. But there wasn’t. In fact, we got more done.
Why? Because with the distance, we had to be more focused on communication and coordination. Those are things we took for granted when we had a central office. We assumed that everyone was working in the same direction because we were in the same place.
