Ten years back if anybody would have suggested that we don’t need offices in the corporate world, he or she would have been laughed out of the room, and ridiculed on top of that.

    In addition to the increased productivity from the employees, better results can also be achieved in this way. You will only hire people who know their craft, and can detail a contract which relates their pays (and the bonuses, raises etc) to a certain minimum standard.
