ROWE.

This is brilliance. The world should take notice. It’s time for companies to start paying attention.

It’s time for managers to release their employees from under their thumbs and let them do the brilliant work they were hired to do.

” Given the constant distractions, it sometimes feels impossible to get any work done at work.”

That says it all. It’s time that workers started being valued for what they really do.

That’s all fine and dandy.

You have to consider, though, that Best Buy has some of the WORST customer service in the world.

So if they leave early for the day, it’s probably better for the rest of us.

I’m so tired of having my commitment and performance measured by whether I’m physically present or not. The constant jibing about the fact that I often work from home, implying that that means not working at all – always from people who have no involvement with my work – is wearing to say the least.

Careful, my friend. You’re beginning to skate onto the ‘pro-union’ ice.
