Roundup No. 21: Our Favorite Remote Work Playlists


Happy weekend, Remote Work Tribe, and welcome back to another Weekly Roundup! If you’re new to the Tribe, our Weekly Roundup is a collection of anything and everything remote work — from the latest remote work policies to the best guidance on leadership for remote teams. We also try to keep our remote employees motivated, providing tips for productivity and how to reduce the risk of burnout. But our motivation freebie this week? Our favorite remote work playlists.

The idea sparked when Christina Garnett tweeted her followers about her current listening situation.

While we all love a good classic rock moment, we couldn’t resist diving into the replies to see what other remote work playlists were making the rounds.

If you’re looking for more remote work playlists, you know the Remote Work Tribe has you covered. Two of our personal favorites include the Motivation Mix from Spotify — sure to induce an uplifting and energetic jam session that will help keep you motivated. This playlist is ideal for web developers and remote recruiters powering through the day.

And the Your Favorite Coffeehouse, also from Spotify. This mix is ideal for the writers and editors in our Remote Work Tribe, since these sweet, mellow tunes are relaxing without being distracting.

Are you primed for a week of unforgettable tunes? We sure hope so. But for now, dance your way into this week’s vibes.
