Becoming remote-first organization – Atlassian’s lessons learned


Atlassian has recently released a report available at that details their experience with transitioning to a remote-first organization.

The report offers valuable insights and is worth reading. What stands out for me is that Atlassian recognized that remote work is not just about hiring new talent or saving on office space. It requires a shift in how the entire organization functions.

In my experience, many companies that transition to remote work without fully committing to it often end up with subpar solutions that leave everyone unhappy.

To ensure a successful transition, companies should fully embrace remote work and make it the norm. For instance, they should require that everyone attend meetings remotely. This eliminates situations where some people are physically present while others are remote, which can make remote workers feel excluded.

Companies should pay attention to these details to create a fully adjusted and inclusive remote work environment.
