The 3 Biggest Mistakes Companies Are Making As They Go Virtual
Virtual work isn't the model of the future - it's here now. But many companies struggle with setting their employees free from the office without sacrificing culture. Larry English is here to guide the way! Twenty years ago, Larry and his friends weren't happy in their consulting jobs. The long hours took a serious toll on their personal lives. So they built their own company where employees could work virtually and the culture would contribute to both the business's success and employee happiness. Since then, Centric Consulting has expanded to over 1,000 team members with operations in 12 US cities and India - and everyone works remotely some or most of the time.
Larry English is president and cofounder of Centric Consulting, a management consulting firm that guides you in the search for answers to complex digital, business, and technology problems. Before Centric Consulting, Larry worked for a large international consulting firm out of college until he got burned out at 25. He and his like-minded pals founded Centric with a focus on changing how consulting was done by building a remote company with a mission to create a culture of employee and client happiness. Larry is author of the book Office Optional: How to Build a Connected Culture with Virtual Teams.
