Larry English, a Forbes Contributor, writes about the virtual workforce and remote work in his column, Office Optional.
Virtual work isn’t the model of the future — it’s here now. And, Larry English is here to guide the way.
Even before the pandemic, Larry was at the forefront of the virtual model. As president of Centric Consulting, he helped pave the way for an entirely virtual company.
Twenty years ago, Larry, along with his two longtime friends and colleagues – Dave Rosevelt and Eric Van Luven — built their own company where employees could work virtually, and the culture would contribute to business success and employee happiness. Since then, we have expanded to more than 1,000 team members with primary locations in 13 U.S. cities and India.
In his book, Office Optional: How to Build a Connected Culture with Virtual Teams, Larry unpacks everything he’s discovered about creating and sustaining a virtual culture of collaborative teams.
A Forbes contributor, he also regularly writes columns regarding the virtual workforce and remote work. See Larry’s Office Optional column below and check back regularly for more.
