      Totally regressive on WFH. They don't get it.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I was stunned at the transition from forward thinking leadership saying that WFH was going to be implemented in some form forever to a regressive and abrubt about face at the July 22 town hall. Now they are taking away WFH as the Delta variant hits Texas hard. We are concerned about our safety. Our work has NEVER been better We are now being corralled back into the office with Monday as a flex day and our on-friday also being flex. However, that schedule is going to end at the end of the year DESPITE PRODUCTIVITY NEVER BEING HIGHER DURING WFH. Mid-Managers were telling everyone in February and March that productivity was so high that we would never fully return to the office. The world had permanently changed we were told.

      Cons

      This move to claw back WFH promises just reeks of entitled management who are able to afford to live inside the loop and send their kids to the best school districts or private schools within a short drive to the office. Hess doesn't pay enough to keep people living in the loop if they have families. It seems very selfish and self-centered.
