Tech company Bynder did not allow any staff in the office during the first week of summer vacation. All locations worldwide remained closed, forcing a total of 300 employees to work from somewhere else. Bynder thus demonstrated its drive for innovation, which goes beyond just technical solutions. It was also a great conversation starter in the run-up to the launch of Bynder’s new software: Orbit.
The idea for the remote work week arose during a brainstorming session about Bynder’s innovative management. It would be a great experiment internally: would a week where staff are required to work outside the office promote creativity and autonomy? It could also generate valuable publicity in the run-up to the launch of Orbit, Bynder’s new software.
