Distant work is placing productiveness and innovation in danger. That was one among the conclusions of a peer-reviewed examine of greater than 61,000 Microsoft staff, printed this week, and it’s our first matter on this week’s GeekWire Podcast.

We speak about the office dynamics which might be creating the scenario, and clarify why the implications go far past Microsoft’s workforce as the COVID-19 Delta variant pushes again the return to the workplace.

Plus, how predictive analytics and machine studying may change the NFL and different sports activities, and a preview of the GeekWire Summit, that includes Amazon CEO Andy Jassy, pop celebrity Ciara, and a lineup of prime leaders in tech, enterprise and science.
