When will companies become a bit more open to remote work? There are video technologies these days to keep the interactions live and keep group work productive, not to mention social collaboration tools to help us become more mobile when we need to be. Heck, there are even tracking tools to see how long it takes someone to respond to an email!
I am very grateful that I work at a job where it is OK to work remotely-- our equipment was built for remote work from day one. At a time like this, the roads should be left open for those who absolutely need face to face interaction at their jobs (healthcare professionals) to get to where they need to go.
Ultimately, it makes me a bit angry that we are so dependent on BART and that gives them (management and unions) so much leverage to dictate our ticket prices and others.
Did you brave the roads today??
