Slack finally realized that Slack makes permanent remote work possible

  • Mashable
  • 3 weeks ago
  • San Francisco-based Slack announced Friday that, contrary to its office-first culture, going forward it will allow employees the option to work remotely forever.
  • Slack is going to become a much more distributed company. That means most employees will have the option to work remotely on a permanent basis if they choose, and the company will begin to increasingly hire employees who are permanently remote.
  • Slack is aware that this will have an impact on the network of contractors and vendors whose hard work supported Slack’s food and beverage programs, social gatherings, and more. As such, Slack will continue to pay its contractors through the end of this year. Presumably, after that those affected by the shift to remote work are on their own.
