Discussion on: Facebook and more big tech companies are going to lean into distributed work. What is going to suck about this?

You can get fired that way even if you have an office, bad HR will be bad with and without an office.

Exactly! When companies start out 100% remote it’s usually through some altruistic idea it creates a better work life balance. When companies shift to 100% remote, just watch the bad practices get even worse in some cases.

When we went fully remote it was a long effort to get things right and it was not great for everyone. It requires a lot of empathy and new practices and is so much easier said than done.

Even with the best of intentions, it seems very hard to scale out the kind of attention to humanity and the care for the mental health of workers.

Shameless our recent work about some of these struggles and wins 😄
