Blog Parade Remote Work

It's the year 2002. The ProjectWizards are a network of professional project managers in the start-up phase. During the first job interviews with interesting candidates I learn a hard lesson. I simply can't offer any interesting after-work experience with the Melle location. Another candidate is no less brutal: he has worked in Hamburg, Berlin and Düsseldorf so far. Melle simply does not fit into his CV. My objection that SAP employees don't mind living in Walldorf was simply answered; when we're as big as SAP, I'll be able to invite him for another interview. He stood up and left.

In the following weeks, the idea was born to simply let the employees work from their favourite place. The home office idea for ProjectWizards was born.

Of course, as a young entrepreneur (the term entrepeneur only became modern later) I got advice from all sides on what to do next. But the main focus was this tenor: Close the shop right away. That won't work. So you can't control your people, etc.
