Salesforce announces permanent remote work for 50,000 employees. Says: - 9-to-5 workday is dead - Immersive workspace shouldn't be limited to desks in offices - Employee experience is about more than ping-pong tables & snacks Will implement 3 ways of working: - Fully-remote: For those employees whose roles never need them to be in-office - Flex: 1-3 days/wk of work in-office, for collaboration & presentations - Office-based: Smallest chunk of employees that need to be in-office 4-5 days/wk - Salesforce offices will be redesigned for more collaboration spaces & breakout areas - Move to remote will drive greater equality since talent can hired from anywhere in the world Any opinions?

The bar for hiring will need to be set quite high for this to work, imo. Only people with sufficient self-discipline, alignment with the company’s mission (and financial alignment - options to become even more mainstream?) and self-awareness will thrive under this kind of structure. I would be scared as a hiring manager to hire junior employees without a track record

I had joined a new company recently where it has an unique working culture. Every weekday morning, we would gather and share our experience or a small story that would spread positive vibes. This would eventually create a good positive energy in the morning for each of us. On top of that, I had realised throughout the time what would generally make an employee stay for long term is your superiors or colleague which eventually your working environment. The founder is a lady in mid 60’s. She is the real life Iron Lady I had ever met. She has the never give up spirit, constantly learning new things and always willing to listen. Such a humble person that is also willing to teach and share whatever she got. If each human is a book, she’s definitely the one with rich content and there are more pages to flip on to learn more from her. I guess that I’m gonna stay a bit longer with her this time.

▪️What scale do you use to measure an employee performance? ▪️Why 1 to 10 does not work? It is all about finding/setting a clear and stable reference point. Agreed and communicated expectations is a good starting point 👌🏽

What makes this scale not a regular scale - it is relative. This scale must go together with an mutual agreement between an employee and manager on what are the expectations. As a scale alone it does not have any meaning. In small companies relying on abstract assessment can work well, however than your at risk on being influenced by one or more cognitive biases. Also, knowing that you trust an employee is not helping him to understand what he can improve and how to be even better.

Rūta Mrazauskaitė on How to easily start eating more plant based foods?Public policy analyst / LawyerSome time ago
Quite possibly - my favourite cookbook so far! If you want to start eating a more plant based diet, there is no need to think of haute cuisine or limit yourself to salad! Plenty of gorgeous ideas here and it ticks all my favourite boxes: 💃🏻 products are easy to find in local supermarkets 💃🏻 cooking is easy and quick, no super skills required 💃🏻 most importantly - DELICIOUS meals! Forget trying to eat more plant based foods - think EATING MORE DELICIOUS FOODS ;-) The author also keeps a cool blog if you care to try before you buy: www.cookieandkate.com
