“The authors take the reader on a deeply researched tour through America’s broken work landscape and sketch out a vision of what a better future might look like.” 
David Wainer, Bloomberg Businessweek 

“This book will challenge you to rethink what it takes to make remote work work—not just for companies, but for people. With lucid writing, provocative examples, and refreshing candor, Charlie Warzel and Anne Helen Petersen highlight what too many workplaces are doing wrong—and how we can start getting it right.”
Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

“Charlie Warzel and Anne Helen Petersen talked with workers and managers around the world to get at the meat of how to change the story: trust, flexibility, and equity for every employee level. A healthy work–life balance doesn’t mean a decrease in productivity; it means happier, healthier workers.”

“Insightful and timely… Never sacrificing meaningful analysis for easy answers, this is a remarkable examination of the rapidly-changing workplace.”
Publishers Weekly, starred

“If you believe there’s a better way to live than refreshing your work email until you close your eyes at night, you’ll appreciate this deep dive into how workers relate to the office.”
Angela Haupt, Washington Post

Out of Office
isn’t just a book about remote work. It’s a book that helps us imagine a future where our lives – at the office and home – are happier, more productive, and genuinely meaningful. As companies and employees imagine their post-pandemic futures, Charlie Warzel and Anne Helen Petersen have provided an essential framework for rethinking how we work.”
—Charles Duhigg, bestselling author of The Power of Habit and Smarter Faster Better

“Based on a historical review of workforce expectations, journalists Warzel and Petersen focus on four key areas for strategic change to improve working conditions, employee satisfaction, and wellness… Prior to the pandemic, worker burnout, transience, and dissatisfaction were culminating in a call for change. The pandemic and remote-work chaos heightened awareness of the need for change, the returnto work now occurring provides the opportunity, and this book provides a roadmap.”
