Well then, Mathilde seems not to dislike too much the new work arrangement... (see post below)
Sunday, December 13, 2009
Luckily, we are not anymore in the 60s or 70s, and signing in and singing out (‘timbrare il cartellino’) at work is less and less the rule. Work is more based on results than on # of hours spent in the office, and flexibility arrangements at work to meet employees’ needs and facilitate a balanced work-life balance are becoming more and more frequent. And thanks to the increasing interconnectivity, "telecommuting" - a form of work arrangement in which employees enjoy the flexibility to work from a remote location by electronically linking to their company - is becoming more and more accepted and adopted...
We can’t deny that the fact that CI (Conservation International, Mathilde’s employer) agreed to have Mathilde telecommuting from India was the element (or one of the key elements) that made us finally deciding to come to Delhi. Although I knew how resourceful Mathilde can be, I sincerely didn't have in fact the guts to have Mathilde at home without something to do.
