Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Tells Employees They Can Work From Home ‘Forever’—Before You Celebrate, There’s A Catch - Forbes

Posted: 13 May 2020 08:09 AM PDT

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, in a paradigm-shifting, COVID-19-inspired move, informed his employees that they can continue working from home "forever." 

Understanding this option is not suitable for everyone, Dorsey is keeping the door open for those who wish to work within the traditional office structure. He's leaving the decision to either work from home or at the office in the hands of his employees. To those who wish to work at Twitter's offices, the chief executive cautioned, "When we do decide to open offices, it also won't be a snap back to the way it was before. It will be careful, intentional, office by office and gradual." 

Given the time frame of reopening, coupled with the opportunity to remain working from home, this new program means that it's highly conceivable that the vast majority of Twitter employees will work remotely for the foreseeable future—or forever. This may have dramatic consequences if other corporations mirror Dorsey's plan. 

It's amazing how quickly the pandemic changed the manner in which businesses operate. While people previously worked from home, it wasn't a universally adopted policy. With companies ordered to shut down by authorities to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, workers and management quickly adjusted to the new arrangements. The experiment proved to be more successful than ever imagined. The ascension of Zoom online videos, Slack, Google Hangouts and other technologies connecting people working from home with their colleagues and bosses appeared to work out relatively smoothly. As schools were closed and children were sent home, it was convenient that parents were there to look after them and offer assistance with their schooling. 

Over the last few weeks, we've seen reports that major corporations, including JPMorgan, Facebook, Capital One, Amazon, Microsoft, Zillow and others, announced that they're extending their work-from-home policies.

Here's a prediction that offers the positive and potentially dire ramifications if other companies join Twitter's new model.

Major corporations will readily adopt Twitter's model for the following reasons. Management will realize that their employees are happier now that they don't have to endure long, tedious and stressful commutes. Employers have noticed that their staff operated relatively efficiently and effectively.

Chief financial officers recognize the huge potential savings they'd realize by not needing to house thousands of workers in highly expensive skyscrapers in overcrowded cities. Executives see an opportunity to also do something positive for our environment. By eliminating the commute to the office, the environment will dramatically improve. 

Human resources professionals know that permitting people to work from home offers their employees a better quality and balance of work and life. This program inspires loyalty, appreciative workers and helps with their employee retention rate.   

In-house lawyers are acutely aware that their company is susceptible to large legal liabilities when they ask their employees to return to the office. They'll need to adhere to stringent requirements and codes to ensure that people don't spread the virus. If workers return to work and a person contracts the virus, the corporation and its executives may be subjected to lawsuits, as there will likely be claims made against the company for failing to provide a safe work environment.

Conceivably, companies no longer will just look for job seekers within their immediate geographical region. For instance, companies headquartered in New York City won't have to just rely upon people who live in the five boroughs of New York or the suburbs of New Jersey, Connecticut and Long Island. They can now offer jobs to anyone throughout the country or even globally.

Job seekers now won't be restricted to work within the confines of their geographic boundaries. Most people work within a reasonable commute from home. If you work in major cities, such as New York, Los Angeles or San Francisco, you're forced to suffer long, soul-sucking, round-trip commutes that eat up three hours of your day and pay a fortune in renting or purchasing a home that's nearby. Now, you won't have to worry about the time spent commuting, the drain on your energy and the wear and tear of your soul. 

With all of the technologies available, what difference does it make if the remote worker is based in Long Island, Utah, Idaho or Texas? Companies could recruit the best talent nationwide. Job seekers, in turn, may apply to jobs everywhere as well. By throwing a wider net, a job seeker has a greater chance of finding the perfect job.

This could be an amazing consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies and workers will both have the choice of hiring or working for a company anywhere.

Here's the possible downside, in which the well-intentioned policy could backfire. Once people work from home, there will be an employment arbitrage occurring. Companies will quickly realize that they don't have to draw upon job seekers from their immediate vicinity. They could hire people nationwide. 

Those who work in expensive cities are generally paid more than those living in less costly areas, even if they possess the same skills and abilities. If they hire someone in North Carolina, they could pay considerably less than if they were to hire a person who lives in Brooklyn.

This could hurt the opportunities for existing employees to grow and those who want to join the company. Companies can seek out the best and brightest talent around the country and world. As the economy was wrecked by the effects of COVID-19 and many companies are suffering massive losses in revenues, saving money is important. In addition to searching and hiring the best talent, businesses will consider how much they need to pay people. If they can save money by hiring folks in lower-cost locations, it's in their best interests to do so. 

This will work against people who live in high-cost cities and earn larger salaries compared to peers in other parts of the country. They may be passed over for jobs, as the company may decide that a person working at home in Montana has the same skills as someone in Chicago, but will take a much lower salary. It will be hard for employees to negotiate for raises, as management will believe that they could easily find a replacement somewhere else within the United States or abroad. This will be exacerbated by the over 30 million people who have recently lost their jobs.

Twitter's new policy may be a watershed event that helps make the lives better for millions of workers, but also hurt the careers of many people too.

Work-from-home jobs available now despite coronavirus outbreak - Fox News

The U.S. has seen at least 1.3 million infections and nearly 81,000 confirmed deaths from the coronavirus, the highest toll in the world by far, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University.

With the U.S. economy in free-fall and more than 30 million people unemployed, many conservatives have been anxious to reopen states for business.

Eyeing the November elections, the Trump administration has been eager to restart the economy, urging on protesters opposing their state governors' stay-at-home orders and expressing his own confidence that the coronavirus will fade away as summer advances and Americans return to work and other pursuits.

Even as President Trump urges getting Americans back to work and reopening the economy, thousands of people are getting sick from COVID-19 on the job.

Recent figures show a surge of infections in meatpacking and poultry-processing plants. There's been a spike of new cases among construction workers in Austin, Texas, where that sector recently returned to work. Even the White House has proven vulnerable, with positive coronavirus tests for one of Trump's valets and for Vice President Mike Pence's press secretary.

The developments underscore the high stakes for communities nationwide as they gradually loosen restrictions on business.

A recent Associated Press review determined that 17 states did not meet a key White House benchmark for loosening restrictions — a 14-day downward trajectory in new cases or positive test rates. Yet many of those have begun to reopen or are about to do so, including Alabama, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Utah.

Of the 33 states that have had a 14-day downward trajectory of either cases or positive test rates, 25 are partially opened or moving to reopen within days, the AP analysis found. Other states that have not seen a 14-day decline remain closed despite meeting some benchmarks.

CORONAVIRUS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Work-from-home jobs, however, are available now amid the coronavirus outbreak, whether you make your own or you apply for one.

See below for more guidance from Fox News.

Todd Siddons is one entrepreneur working remotely who recently moved to Arizona.

He told Fox News: "I've spent the last five years as my own boss building a network marketing business in the health and wellness industry. It's allowed me the geographical freedom to live and work from beaches, coffee shops, and cities around the world.  I'm always looking to partner with other inspired entrepreneurial types who aren't afraid to hustle."

Todd Gareiss, who received an MBA from Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business and a Bachelor of Arts in economics from Drew University, is a marketing expert who uses the same strategies and techniques used by leading advertising and PR firms for branding work-from-home job seekers in the new market.

He runs CareerClout.com and told Fox News: "We are going to start seeing a lot of empty office space … in the years ahead" as work-from-home jobs become more normal for the American workface.

He said job seekers need to have resumes that highlight independence and productivity outside the office while working remotely.

"Not only do you have to uncover the work at home jobs you have to out-class the competition for those jobs. Ask yourself why you over all the other applicants. You have to out-market the competition."

Below are a few work-from-home jobs going unfilled nationally right now.
