During the COVID-19 pandemic, this quote rings true: “Crisis does not build character, it reveals it.” While likely written to describe individuals, it is equally applicable to Corporate America’s response to crisis. Many organizations have stepped up to ensure both employee and customer safety, implementing and facilitating work-from-home environments. Companies with a stringent history of “no telecommuting” have developed overnight policies for the safety of their people, without sacrificing productivity.
In a recent interview, Mark Cuban described “how companies treat workers during pandemic could define their brand for decades.” He wasn’t referencing their customer-facing persona. Cuban was talking about their employer brand! How companies care for their employees in times of crisis will be publically scruitinized for years to come – either serving to attract or detract potential talent.
At SPLICE, we predict this pandemic will forever change the way we work. We are witnessing a rise in remote workplace confidence among employers. Not only are companies realizing that employees can be productive in off-site locations, they are also seeing the potential for tremendous overhead savings, encouraging carbon-neutrality for the environment, and enhancing employee well-being!
We are highlighting organizations that are saying, “You are valuable to us. We care about your well-being. Work from home to ensure your safety.” Below is a list of organizations, with links to their career pages, who have successfully implemented work-from-home strategies.
