Martha Stewart does a lot of work around the house but she doesn't want to work from home. Stewart, 81, recently spoke with Footwear News, and the discussion turned to work and work culture in America today. During the interview, Stewart voiced her doubts regarding hybrid and remote work and her belief that employees should always be available. Stewart began her career as a model and then ventured into catering and event planning. Her passion for event planning quickly caught the public's attention - and that of the media. Her work led to her own magazine in the '90s, along with a series of television programs. Here are her thoughts on a method of working that gained prominence during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Technology has made it more possible than ever, with conferences taking place over Zoom and entire reports compiled by team members who live countries apart. Stewart, however, isn't a fan and doesn't find it sustainable.

"Look at the success of France with their stupid … you know, off for August, blah blah blah. That’s not a very thriving country.

This is what Stewart is all about. Stewart also wants employees to be available on weekends / Xavier Collin/Image Press Agency) In 2021, she said she believes all employees should be available at any time, "even on weekends." Stewart, who employed 30 people at her Bedford, New York property, had a staff member who she called on Sunday, only to be told he couldn't talk because he was taking a bath. "I knew I couldn't work with that person. I just couldn't," she said. "If you can't talk on a Sunday and you take umbrage that I'm calling you on a Sunday — you know, if you are a terribly religious person, I take that into consideration. But I knew this guy was not a terribly religious person. It's exciting! Business is exciting. I want people to feel that way about business." Stewart has always loved the hustle and doesn't want anything having to do with remote or hybrid working / Everett Collection RELATED: See Martha Stewart’s Ageless Selfies—Did She Go Under The Knife?
