What asynco members say

“We need to connect, converse, communicate, collaborate, and create within communities of diverse minds with shared values. The asynco community is one of those and I highly recommend it, especially – for the change agents out there – if you’re interested in the future of work or want to explore new, better ways of working.

I’ve reconnected with old colleagues and have met fascinating new people. The insight shared and depth of conversations I’ve seen in the past five months never ceases to amaze me.” - Rob Caldera

“It feels great to be in a safe, respectful place – where opposing views are seen as a plus and embraced as an opportunity.” Ana Neves

“asynco is a deeply focused group of intelligent professionals interacting and exploring the edges of our topic in a pollution-free online community. No bots. No junk. No bull. Yet plenty of laughs and loads of kindness and mutual respect.” - Jim Canto

“asynco is always full of useful and interesting conversations about the future of work, whether that’s hybrid, mass scale, or of particular interest for me intersectional with the older workforce.” - Mark Elliott

“Let's be the safe place to build trust and connectivity.” William Ryan


The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic triggered and accelerated a range of work trends, laying bare the vulnerabilities of multiple, interconnected global systems we’d assumed were stable and secure. The escalating climate crisis and increasingly extreme weather events place further pressure on organisations to future proof.

We’ve arrived at the end of ‘business as usual’. For organisations to survive, they must adapt.

Most professionals are concerned for what this means for their skills, occupations and livelihoods.

The pace of change has already outstripped human capacity to upskill.

Knowledge workers, and those able to work remotely, need new rituals and routines to effectively work distributedly.

Given this new landscape, Working the Future established asynco, an international community of practice, to help shape the future of distributed and asynchronous work.
