Liam Martin believes we have corrupted “work from home” and turned it into “living at work”. He wants to correct those mistakes and help companies run remote the right way. Liam is a serial entrepreneur who runs Time Doctor and Staff.com — one of the most popular time tracking and productivity software platforms in use by top brands today. He is also a co-organizer of the world’s largest remote work conference — Running Remote — and has a book out by the same name, helping business leaders put these practices in place in their organizations.
