Distributed

Fully distributed? Hybrid? The reality for many companies is that a subset of your employee population will be working from home at least partially for years to come. How do you gauge how best to design your policies and programs to support this new reality?
This section is designed to help HR and business leaders make more informed decisions about how and where their employees will work, and the accompanying logistics associated with those decisions. From determining how to orient your policies to exploring how to determine compensation, the curated resources in the sections above will help you make better decisions for your companies and teams.

“72% of U.S. office workers would like to work remotely at least two days a week.” (
)

The pre-pandemic doubts and reservations towards distributed work have proven a bit, well, antiquated.

The question is not longer
can
remote work work, it’s
how
do we make distributed models work for our organizations and our employees.

COVID-19 has shown us what organizations can accomplish. Just days after the illness caused by the novel coronavirus was officially labeled a pandemic, many had managed to get more than 90% of their staff working remotely. Jobs that we never imagined could be performed remotely—like call center operator, financial trader, and many more—suddenly and successfully were handled from home. Now, in many places, pandemic-associated restrictions are easing and companies are turning their attention to bringing people back to the workplace.

Some of the tech industry’s giants have been dealt a giant blow by the COVID-19 crisis, laying off thousands of employees in San Francisco in recent weeks. These companies—and many others—are now looking at a future that includes moving entirely remote, or shifting to a hybrid policy in which employees are in the office only on certain days.

But Second Home’s unusual design has allowed the shared space to continue functioning at a time when other nonessential office buildings remain shuttered in L.A. County.
