“You can get opportunities now anywhere.” John H. Chuang / CEO, Aquent
Neal Slimick lives in Charlotte, works for Boston based Aquent, and with a team in San Diego. He said working from home has given him more flexibility, time with his wife and four children, and the freedom to choose where they live despite his career. John Chuang, CEO of Aquent, believes the COVID pandemic has produced “a generation worth of change compressed into seven months” as employers allow for more work-from-home options. And it changes how cities will approach economic growth. “In today’s world,” Chuang said, “you do not need to attract the company to get the high paying jobs in your area. All you have to do is attract the people.”
