The future of work may be defined by companies such as @Buffer and include being a fully remote team, transparent salaries, and radically different hiring and performance reviews #HR #jobs

When you experiment with work culture as much as we do at Buffer, you tend to receive a lot of questions about it.

What is it like to work remotely? How do you collaborate across time zones? Do people really feel okay making their salaries public? Can you become friends with teammates when you’re not in an office? Do you miss working in an office? Do you basically live in pajamas? (Quick answer to that one: not usually, though I definitely have spent a work day or two in pajamas!)

WHY IT MATTERS: I wrote about the buffer open culture in the past and find this latest post to be a great summary of the best practice they have put in place over the years. Critics will say this only applies in startups but I would argue that 1) Buffer is already a 6+ years old 80 person team company 2) Large companies are composed of business units often much smaller in size than Buffer. That being said, many of my colleagues like coming to work in the morning and interacting with people face to face during the day so this model is not for everyone. But if you are looking for a different way to work, then I suggest you look at this and the new agile tribes that I wrote about previously.
