Work From Home Policy Is A Question of Company Culture
A one-size fits all approach to WFH policies will not work. CEOs and Executive Management teams must shape WFH policy based on corporate culture. Some companies such as Automattic (WordPress owner) have operated in a 100% remote work environment since their founding (Automattic founded in 2005). Other companies perform better when employees share a physical work space. Some of us have traveled for work most of our adult lives and spend 80% of our time working remotely. Certain functions within Technology companies and Asset Managers are well-suited to WFH environments. Those industries ought to leverage WFH as a recruiting tool, especially Technology companies where Software Developers, Architects, Engineers and Data Scientists are in heavy demand.
