Remote work started over 120 years ago. It isn’t a new idea.
Alexander Graham Bell hired Emma Nutt in September of 1878. Emma was the first female telephone operator, and her sister, Stella, became the second just a few hours later.
Emma’s job was answering the incoming call, asking for the number, and then putting a corded plug into the right socket on the switchboard to connect the two callers. Polite and with a soothing voice, Emma became the role model for telephone operators.
Small-town telephone companies would put their switchboard in someone’s home, not an office. The woman of the house worked from home.
These were the first remote workers. 120 years ago.
