I was previously ignorant of the term "Distributed Workforce" but I recently read a tweet from business mogul Mitchell Harper saying the following...

"I strongly believe in 5 years people will laugh at the idea of commuting an hour each way to an office where where they pretend to be productive from 9-5, non stop.

If your team isn't distributed now, you're missing one of the biggest productivity shifts in our lifetime."

Quite a statement. 

There certainly are pros and cons, and 5 years seems a little bit optimistic to me (in the UK at least.) It'll be interesting to see how the future of office work unfolds...

What do you think?
