Great stuff. Thank you FedEx!
Laughs aside, I feel this video actually brings up two counterintuitive but legitimate points:
1) The first is the current theme of my most recent posts: Creating an illusion in your videoconference is simply not necessary or useful. Heck, in this video it was outright detrimental.
2) Although they shouldn’t have called from the golf course, these guys did in fact get their work done. They also knew what work to do next, and promised to do it. The boss didn’t seem overly perturbed (except that they were trying so hard to disguise where they were), and why should he? They did a good job. (Except for the part where they destroyed company property, of course.)
Still, the golf course? I submit that, unless you’re a reporter, other bad places to telecommute from include: movie theaters, sporting events, rock concerts, bar mitzvahs, the spa…
