但那到底是什么意思呢?X9r世界播


The company's nearly 3,000 employees will continue to work remotely most of the time, but will occasionally go into the office for more collaborative and team-building work. To help facilitate this, the company will revamp its offices, turning them into what it calls "Dropbox Studios." X9r世界播

该公司的近3000名员工大部分时间将继续远程工作,但偶尔也会走进办公室,进行更具协作性和团队建设的工作。为了促进这一点,该公司将翻新其办公室,将其改造成它所说的“Dropbox工作室”。X9r世界播

"Folks doing individual daily work, that happens from home or from co-working spaces," said Melanie Collins, vice president of people. "[Dropbox Studios] are really explicitly for things like strategy setting, team building, community events, leadership development training," X9r世界播

“人们每天单独工作,这发生在家里或共同工作的地方,”“人物”副总裁梅勒妮·柯林斯(Melanie Collins)说。“(Dropbox Studios)非常明确地体现在战略制定、团队建设、社区活动、领导力发展培训等方面。”X9r世界播


The company decided against a hybrid approach that would allow workers to choose if and when they want to be in the office because it feared it could potentially create an unequal playing field among workers, Collins explained. X9r世界播

柯林斯解释说,该公司决定不采用混合方式,即允许员工选择是否以及何时进入办公室,因为它担心这可能会在员工之间造成不平等的竞争环境。X9r世界播

What will the future of work look like for Dropbox employees? X9r世界播

Dropbox员工的未来工作会是什么样子?X9r世界播


In short, Dropbox is becoming a virtual first company. It means that remote work is the primary experience for all of our employees globally. Because we know human connection is still critical in terms of building high-performing teams, we will invest in collaborative spaces designed for team-gathering and community-building, instead of a collection of desks you go to every day. These will be called Dropbox Studios X9r世界播

简而言之,Dropbox正在成为虚拟的第一家公司。这意味着远程工作是我们全球所有员工的主要体验。因为我们知道人际关系在建立高绩效团队方面仍然至关重要,我们将投资于为团队聚集和社区建设而设计的协作空间,而不是你每天都去的办公桌集合。这些将被称为Dropbox Studios。X9r世界播


Why is this a better approach to the hybrid approach? X9r世界播

为什么这是混合方法的更好方法?X9r世界播

Where do you want to work? X9r世界播

你想在哪里工作X9r世界播


We believe that virtual first is just a more opinionated point of view on remote work. It is different from what other companies are doing which is hybrid remote, which is really popular: This is where employees choose whether or not to work out of the office. X9r世界播

我们认为,虚拟优先只是一种对远程工作更固执己见的观点。它不同于其他公司正在做的混合远程操作,后者非常流行:这是员工选择是否在办公室外工作的地方。X9r世界播


We had reservations on this model because it perpetuates two very different employee experiences that could result in issues with things like inclusion or inequity with respect to performance or career trajectory and this really was a non-starter for us. We really wanted to preserve this level playing field that we've all experienced since working remotely in our future of work model. X9r世界播

我们对这种模式有所保留,因为它延续了两种截然不同的员工体验,可能会导致业绩或职业轨迹方面的包容性或不公平等问题,这对我们来说真的是不可能的。在我们未来的工作模式中,我们真的很想保留自从远程工作以来我们所有人都经历过的这个公平的竞争环境。X9r世界播


Will there be a set schedule of when people come into the office? X9r世界播

人们什么时候进办公室会有固定的时间表吗?X9r世界播


Folks doing individual daily work that happens from home or from co-working spaces. Dropbox Studios are not for individual work, it's not for drop-in or desk hoteling. It really is explicitly for things like strategy setting, team building, community events, leadership development training. X9r世界播

在家里或共同工作场所单独做日常工作的人们。Dropbox工作室不适用于个人工作,也不适用于临时拜访或办公桌旅馆。它确实是明确的,比如战略制定,团队建设,社区活动,领导力发展培训。X9r世界播


Will you allow employees to relocate? X9r世界播

你们会允许员工搬迁吗?X9r世界播


Yes, absolutely. Because of this model, with remote work being the primary experience that actually gives folks more freedom in how they work in terms of scheduling but also where they work. We will be encouraging relocation for folks with this new model. We want them to work where it makes sense for them. X9r世界播

是的,绝对的。由于这种模式,远程工作是主要的体验,这实际上给了人们更多的自由,让他们在日程安排和工作地点方面都能更自由地工作。我们将鼓励有这种新模式的人们搬迁。我们希望他们在对他们有意义的地方工作。X9r世界播


What will these new studios look like compared to the current office arrangement? X9r世界播

与目前的办公安排相比,这些新的工作室会是什么样子?X9r世界播


Currently, our office spaces are a mix of individual desks and meeting rooms and collaboration spaces. We have rooms that are entirely floor-to-ceiling white boards, large conference rooms and small conference rooms and sort of a mix. And so, if you can picture the future, no more individual desks at all. Think of it is an entire space with multiple collaboration spaces in it. X9r世界播

目前,我们的办公空间混合了单独的办公桌、会议室和协作空间。我们的房间完全是从地板到天花板的白板,有大的会议室,也有小的会议室,还有一些混合的房间。因此,如果你能想象未来,就不会再有单独的办公桌了。可以认为这是一个包含多个协作空间的整个空间。X9r世界播


How often will workers be called into the office? X9r世界播

员工多久会被叫到办公室一次?X9r世界播


It's really for you to work out a rhythm with your team. For my team, for example, I want to get my leadership team together once a quarter to do things like strategic planning and team building. We will agree on what day we will meet at one of our studio hubs for that event. X9r世界播

这真的需要你和你的团队一起制定节奏。例如,对于我的团队,我想让我的领导团队每季度聚集一次,做一些战略规划和团队建设之类的事情。我们将就活动的哪一天在我们的演播室中心会面达成一致。X9r世界播


Are you going to downsize your real estate? X9r世界播

你打算缩减你的房产吗?X9r世界播


We are working on finalizing our long-term real estate strategy now. We also plan for our team to work from home until at least June of next year so we have a little bit of time to sort through this. But our goal is to support studios in all cities that we currently have large concentrations of employees, so this could be repurposing our current offices or investing in new or on-demand spaces that we leverage as we become more distributed. X9r世界播

我们现在正在努力敲定我们的长期房地产战略。我们还计划让我们的团队至少在家工作到明年6月,所以我们有一点时间来解决这个问题。但我们的目标是支持目前员工大量集中的所有城市的工作室,因此这可能是重新调整我们现有办公室的用途,或者投资于新的或按需空间,随着我们变得更加分散,我们将利用这些空间。X9r世界播


Has collaboration been a pain point for remote workers? X9r世界播

协作是否是远程员工的痛点?X9r世界播


I think the biggest problem with this is we assume collaboration has to take place live or synchronously, so we just get on another Zoom call. This notion of Zoom fatigue is real -- we are on calls back-to-back for eight or nine hours a day and that just results in burnout, which is a hindrance to getting work done. So as we think about this pivot to an orientation around remote work, we really want to rebuild our rhythms and social contracts. We really want to shift our mindsets around work. This virtual first strategy gives us the chance to develop better habits about when and how we meet. X9r世界播

我认为最大的问题是,我们假设协作必须实时或同步进行,所以我们只需召开另一次Zoom电话会议。这种变焦疲劳的概念是真实存在的--我们每天背靠背地打电话八九个小时,这只会导致精疲力竭,这是完成工作的障碍。因此,当我们考虑转向以远程工作为导向时,我们真的想重建我们的节奏和社会契约。我们真的很想改变我们对工作的心态。这个虚拟的先行策略让我们有机会养成更好的习惯,知道我们何时何地见面。X9r世界播

Working from home isn't for everyone X9r世界播

并不是每个人都适合在家工作X9r世界播


Shifting from quick live snycs, to going asynchronous by default. So trying to solve problems over tools, like email or Slack versus in a live meeting. We will also be giving explicit guidance on when meetings should be scheduled, guidelines on what requires a meeting, what could have been an email. And so meetings for things like complex problems or sensitive topics we want to empower our employees to get work done without the need to be on a Zoom. And we also want to give tips on how to use our various communication tools. X9r世界播

默认情况下,从快速实时SNYCS转换为异步。因此,尝试通过电子邮件或松弛等工具来解决问题,而不是在现场会议中解决问题。我们还将就何时安排会议提供明确的指导,关于什么需要会议的指导方针,什么可能是一封电子邮件。因此,对于复杂问题或敏感话题的会议,我们希望让我们的员工能够在不需要变焦的情况下完成工作。我们还想就如何使用我们的各种交流工具给出一些提示。X9r世界播


What does this mean for workers who don't want to work remote? X9r世界播

对于不想远程工作的员工来说,这意味着什么?X9r世界播


There are some home setups that are simply not conducive to being able to do great work. We are going to basically stand up a flexible-first allowance and this enables folks to make deliberate choices on how they want to spend that perk stipend. So if you wanted to spend that on a co-working space, we would help sponsor that. This may not be aligned to employees' preferences. When they joined Dropbox they didn't join a remote company, so we are making this pivot kind of halfway through here and so we know that this might not be for everyone and we understand and we are just hoping that employees give us a shot. X9r世界播

有些家庭设置根本不利于完成伟大的工作。我们基本上将实行弹性优先津贴,这使人们能够慎重选择如何使用这笔津贴。所以如果你想把这笔钱花在共同工作空间上,我们可以帮你赞助。这可能与员工的偏好不一致。当他们加入Dropbox时,他们并没有加入一家偏远的公司,所以我们在这里进行了一半的转折,所以我们知道这可能不适合每个人,我们理解,我们只是希望员工给我们一个机会。X9r世界播
