The future of WFH is Work From Anywhere

“You can’t keep us on lockdown, forever!” Yells everyone. All the time.

It’s true that working from home is getting way old. But a full return to the office may not be the answer even after everyone gets COVID-19 vaccines and herd immunity sets in.

Salesforce thinks it’s hit upon a solution. The company, which employs 140,000 people, took a novel approach when figuring what was best for their people: they asked their people what they’d prefer.

Here’s what they said in this blogpost:

This employee feedback has guided our re-opening strategy and how we’ll work going forward. We learned that nearly half of our employees want to come in only a few times per month, but also that 80% of employees want to maintain a connection to a physical space. So we are giving employees flexibility in how, when and where they work with three ways of working:

  1. Flex – When it’s safe to return to the office, most of our employees around the globe will work flex. This means they’ll be in the office 1-3 days per week for team collaboration, customer meetings, and presentations.

  2. Fully Remote – For employees who don’t live near an office or have roles that don’t require an office, they will work remotely full-time.

  3. Office-based – The smallest population of our workforce will work from an office location 4-5 days per week if they’re in roles that require it.

“We’re not going back to the way things were,” president and chief people officer Brent Hyder told the Wall Street Journal. “I don’t believe that we’ll keep every space in every city that we’re in, including San Francisco.”
The move is being dubbed the “Work from Anywhere” model and we’re pumped that Salesforce thinks enough of its people to let them guide their own path to work/life balance.Claps to Salesforce! You rock!

🤣 MEME of the day 🤣

Have a funny meme? Email your favorite meme here for a chance to be featured in our next Rise&Shred.

Mat Ishibia is going to own a sports team one day

“Are you bored?” 

“Looking for something to spice up your life?”

These are the questions posed by Saturday Night Live actors in their recent spoof advertisement for Zillow’s services.

This sultry YouTube clip opens more like a video that would normally promote dating opportunities for lonely singles. However, it satirically turns into an ad for the online real estate listing service mega-site.

“You used to want sex, but you’re in your late 30s now…” the ad continues.

“You need… Zillow, Zillow,,” to which the live audience erupts with laughter.

It gets better, as the spoof goes deeper.

“Our listings are just standing by, waiting for you to browse them,” says one actress, looking seductively into the camera. 

Ok, we’re going to stop there because we don’t want to spoil the rest. Also, it’s early in the morning and the video is definitely NSFW. So you may want to watch it later, alone, or as the SNL/Zillow ad suggests: “go wild, and invite your partner.”

Texas Realtor who rioted is actually broke and we shouldn’t be hearing about it

OK, Rise&Shred is a big fan of the free press, obviously. But this simply goes too far. 

Texas Realtor Jenna Ryan flew into Washington on a private jet to storm the Capitol. Today Ryan is accused of rushing into the building, past broken glass and blaring security alarms and, according to federal prosecutors, shouting: “Fight for freedom! Fight for freedom!”

However, this article in the Washington Post published intimate details of her financial health, as well as other arrested after the Capitol insurrection:

“Despite her outward signs of success, Ryan had struggled financially for years. She was still paying off a $37,000 lien for unpaid federal taxes when she was arrested. She’d nearly lost her home to foreclosure before that. She filed for bankruptcy in 2012 and faced another IRS tax lien in 2010.”

What is to be gained from publishing her financial situation? But it doesn’t stop there.

Ronald Leonhardt, the president and CEO of Ohio-based CrossCountry Mortgage bought a home in Miami Beach for

 $12 million, and that made coverage in The Real Deal. As if buying a mansion was something less than legal.

So, while we can’t speak of the editorial strategy of doing so, exposing the finances of those in our space is hitting a nerve.
We think some things should be sacred, and the details about our personal lives is
a big one. We would love to hear your thoughts on this, shoot us an email to tell
us what you think!
