Academics hold office hours â€” set periods when they can be found in their on-campus offices, available to talk â€” because they are not required to be on campus except for when they teach. Since more of the workforce is adopting that work-wherever-you-want approach, I really like Whitney Hess’ idea of establishing of office hours for herself. She’s a user experience designer, and if you want to talk with her, you can count on her being in her office, with a chat client open, on Sunday mornings, 9-10 EDT.
More of us ought to be doing that. I think it’s a keeper of an idea.
