  • CEO’s remote work policy

    As employers and business leaders everywhere grapple with employee preferences on remote work, they might take a page out of Gravity CEO Dan Price'splaybook.

    When Price recently polled employees to find out where they wanted to work, only 7 percent said they prefer to work in the office. Thirty-one percent requested a work/home office hybrid solution. And a whopping 62 percent said they would prefer to work only from home.

    So, how would Price come up with a policy that kept the biggest number of employees happy, and keep work moving forward at the same time?

    "Do whatever you want," Price said recently on Twitter. "As a CEO, what do I care?"

    Price then summed up his recommended policy in just 10 words:

    "If you get your work done, that's all that matters."

      He’s 100% right. Flexibility will be needed for employers to keep their best people happy. The world has changed, and not a moment too soon IMO.

          Kind of goes against that whole "team" thing though. In the office is where the promotions are made.

            Yes, a consideration does need to be made for things like “teamwork” and “culture”. But this can be achieved to at least some degree by occasional in person meetings and gatherings, and frequent video meetings. Communication is key. And it’s also worth noting that remote work doesn’t work for all professional jobs. But when and where it can work there’s no reason not to allow flexibility.

              A guy in Canada (I'm in Denver) was just promoted to be my new manager. He's not moving here.

                I did remote work before it was cool. But being in the office allows you to get a pulse of what's going on. Bonding is important.

                  If you are only around to “get the work done”, you are nothing but an input…. and time will come when a cheaper input will be around to replace you.

                  I don’t know, remote work sounds great, but it’s pretty easily to be become lost in a seas of others….

                  my best work assets are my height, build and blue eyes in a workforce that is 85% women… I would hate to leave that advantage on the sidelines…

                    In an increasingly disconnected world, ironically, it is imperative more than ever to have a presence…

                      Yeah, like most things in work trends, this will likely be taken too far. I think a hybrid home/office work balance is probably more ideal in places it can be managed.

                        Yeah, depends a lot on the job and the circumstances. For example, in larger offices, and particularly if it’s a company HQ or hub, then yes, in person is probably more important. Not as much at smaller and satellite offices. Everyone I deal with, other than my small group of colleagues, is in another state so I’m remote from them anyway.

                          It’s just funny to see the old guard resist this, completely unaware of the seismic shift that has occurred in the way most professionals work and live. People quitting in droves and yet they keep insisting everyone get back to the office. So resistant to change. It’s odd to see successful companies and management teams struggle so much with something that isn’t nearly as difficult as they’re making it.

                                    Want the poors to work harder, pay them less. Want the wealthy to work harder, pay them more!

                                      I tried going in to the office but with so few people there and the rules, I didn’t see the point. I’m back to WFH 100%, and I doubt I’ll go back for a while yet.

                                        That's just a reality. People that can get a better deal already do.

                                          I don't care...at this point I can manage a team remotely or in the office and get good performance. The communication methods vary. Working for an MNC that's global...my team is all over the place anyway...so there is no "office" anymore. People need to adapt. Cause this is happening.

                                              I guess it really depends on the job. But if you're in an in it to win it corporation, showing your face is a good idea.

                                                I think in most careers really. At least the kind of careers that can theoretically be done remotely.

                                                Being a numbered face on a screen has its drawbacks. Especially when difficult decisions start to bounce around. Plus I really don't believe that people who don't really have any good chance to know each other will work together as well over the long term.

                                                  While you’re not wrong, you are ignoring modern reality. I work and communicate regularly with colleagues in 4 different states. Most of them I’ve never met in person, and most likely never will. As I said earlier in this thread, it’s situational.
