How to attract genuinely good staff in IT

It’s funny. Why do companies offer perks like “table tennis” and “games room” and never offer you something like “quiet office”?

I am at work… to work. I don’t want to hear ping-pong games. I don’t want to have to put on earphones to block out crowd sounds.

I like to concentrate! I like to actually think about what I do in detail first, so I can just get it right the first time.

This is why I so prefer to work remotely these days. I am simply far more productive, because I make far fewer mistakes, because I am able to maintain focus, because I don’t get interrupted by people’s table tennis tournaments.

Like what you read? Give Tom Ritchford a round of applause.
