For Moen, the issue is redefining the culture of the workplace to fit the changing times. “We’re using concepts that were developed in the 1950s when you were tethered to a phone or desk or assembly line,” she argues, “and that’s simply not the case now. And the workforce also isn’t the same. It used to be the average full-time worker was paired with a full-time homemaker, and now neither men nor women have full-time homemakers supporting them. We need to get up to date by redesigning how we work in terms of the clock.”
