    I hope this encourages organizations to start tracking actual work performance, and not just attendance, which still seems to be a key metric in some managers eyes.
    A friend of mine was telling me that at her insurance company they were tracking performance by how many claims you can close out.
    One person managed to go on for 8 months with average performance by going in after people had completed their entries, and changing the 'closed by' to their own name.

    See I have found the opposite, it’s all the parents who are attached to WFH to stay home with the kids ( and stop paying childcare ).
    My wife would LOVE to get back to the office, shes having a difficult time juggling work (where shes currently swamped), and our 5 year old who's becoming increasingly demanding with every week she's not playing with her friends.

    Cant argue with the cash savings though. When (if) our kid starts kindergarten in September, and her office opens back up, we'll have saved $7500 in dayhome, parking, and gas. Thats only one kid too.

    I’m going back in on Monday. Would have been in earlier if not for my ankle.

    Between the not being able to walk/drive and trying to save a few bucks I have conned the wife into being my personal driver.

    If I can go until the new year without paying for monthly parking I’ll be laughing.

    Good way to lose employees, location doesn’t equal value
    Punching the clock at home doesn’t equal value either.

    I don’t think I could ever work somewhere where my compensation was decided by some HR pay scale formula like that. My comp is between me and my employer and is a negotiated item, HR just draws up the documents.

    If anything because of WFH the talent pool has increased, at least in my work the KPIs have showed on par or even improved work efficiency which means a few things
    - we can keep a flexible work schedule
    - we don’t need offices that are nearly as big come lease time
    - we’re not restricted to local talent pools and can hire the best people even if they aren’t in a city we normally operate from

    Sure one size won’t fit all, speaking from the experience that i have


    Going back the article, if I choose to love somewhere more expensive like Vancouver or Toronto then should I expect a salary increase to compensate?

    WFH is a real double-edged sword for parents.

    I think that while WFH is working well for an established team I can see issues trying to onboard and getting new staff up to speed

    It’s not that difficult. We’ve on boarded something like 15 employees since the lockdown completely remotely.

    I think this depends if both parents work. I was talking about this with a friend the other day and she was saying how awful WFH has been (they both work), and I was saying how awesome it’s been (my wife doesn’t work). I could def see how it would be tough with both parents having to work.

    Zuckerberg just want to pay less when staff isnt around San Jose and not as many staff sharing the facilities which he had paid good $ to build out.

    But SV has moved upward to Seattle and eastward to Austin and both real estate has doubled in value in the last decade.

    Meanwhile GVR and GTA still get paid less than Calgary on average and cost of living in Calgary is at least 50% less.

    Just pretend you work in construction... where nothing has changed. Sites are full of people, offices are full of people and literally nothing has changed.
    Construction site working density is probably less than offices and encounters with randoms probably is also less.

    That said, this is logical next step. We will retreat when real 2nd wave comes again.

    How happy would you be with a return to work plan if your office was in Houston? Jesus, some companies down there are full steam ahead with getting people back in the office. Others are as low as 5% apparently.

    Do you think training someone via WFH would make a difference though?

    Like all your current workers know the systems, expectations, how to do their jobs (hopefully), etc. Whereas say if you hired someone from Seattle to WFH full time ... would you foresee it taking longer to bring them up to speed or about the same?

    Heard their ICU capacity is down to 6%. Sounds like another NYC in the making.
