More companies are recognizing the benefits of having employees remain at home. Accounting firm Pricewaterhouse Coopers has told 40,000 of its staff that they can continue to work remotely, forever if they choose. Moves like this by big companies will undoubtedly be a boon for “Zoom towns” across America. Daily Mail reports:
Working from home is about to become permanent option for 40,000 client services employees at accounting and consulting firm PwC.
The company will become one of the biggest employers in America to embrace permanent remote work.
PwC employees who choose to work virtually would have to come into the office a maximum of three days a month for in-person appointments such as critical team meetings, client visits and learning sessions, PwC’s deputy people leader, Yolanda Seals-Coffield, said.
‘We have learned a ton through the pandemic, and working virtually, as we think about the evolution of flexibility, is a natural next step,’ she said. ‘If you are an employee in good standing, are in client services, and want to work virtually, you can, full stop.’
Client services employees who are eligible to work from home include consultants, auditors and tax professionals. The company has 55,000 total US employees.
Action Line: If you have the ability to move and continue working, and you’re tired of living in a state where you’re treated more like a piggy bank to withdraw money from, than a valued constituent, it’s time to look for a better America. Start your search for a new home with my Super States.
