11 Companies Embracing Long-Term Remote Working and 5 Who Are Not | UNLEASH

Workforce Trends

This article summarizes 11 firms adapting to long-term remote work, including Ford, Dropbox, Salesforce, Shopify, and Siemens. It contains each firms’ workforce size, revenue, a link to their announcement on remote work, and a summary of each firms’ stance on the topic. For example, Siemens’s perspective is that employees will work remotely two or three days a week, whether this is from home, a coworking space, or other appropriate working environments. Office working will then make up the rest of an employee’s working week. A separate but related article (published by the same firm) shares five organizations that are not embracing remote work, such as Netflix, UBS, Goldman Sachs., and JP Morgan. Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan, noted remote working had had a detrimental im pact on younger workers and that so-called “creative combustion” had been affected. Goldman Sachs CEO, David Solomon, referred to remote work as an aberration that we’re going to correct as soon as possible. It will be interesting to see the impact these company decisions (both those who support remote work and don’t) will have on longer-term outcomes, including worker wellbeing and the retention and attraction of top talent.
