Working from home has benefits – for employers | Letters
Risks and maintenance costs are transferred to workers, writes Terry Kelly, while Janet Poliakoff believes it reduces carbon emissions and Caroline Mozley is glad there is still a choiceYour report that HSBC is planning to cut its global office footprint by 40% as a result of requiring its staff to work from home is somewhat misleading (Morgan Stanley boss tells US staff to be back in office in September, 15 June). In reality, what HSBC and a host of other companies are planning to do is cut the cost of their office footprint by transferring the square footage they pay for in town and city centres to the homes of their staff. So the total office space such companies use is not reduced, it is simply transferred, along with the cost, to the staff who are required to work from home.The implication, of course, is that HSBC et al will enjoy enormous cost savings in terms of rents, building maintenance and, not least of all, business rates, by moving commercial premises to residential settings. Quite apart from issues of planning (ie, residential premises being used for commercial purposes), there is the question of whether someone who uses their home officially for business purposes should be paying towards the shortfall in business rates that local authorities will lose out on as businesses vacate their city/town centre premises – not to mention the knock-on effect on service industries that depend on office workers for their livelihood. Also, who pays for cleaning the home/office space that employees use on behalf of their employer? Presumably the employee. Continue reading...

Sadly, children’s services are not a political priority | Letters
Lucy Peake on the value of kinship care and Steven Walker on politicians’ indifference to the plight of children. Plus letters by June O’Sullivan and Megan JarvieIf the English children’s services system is a “tower of Jenga held together by Sellotape” (Children’s services in England shaky as Jenga tower, says review lead, 17 June), then kinship carers and the children they care for are the blocks that have already toppled off the sides.For too long, kinship care has been marginalised by policymakers and treated as the poor relation to adoption. Yet evidence tells us that well-supported kinship care offers continuity, stability and the preservation of important family bonds, the very same basic obligation to children that the independent review of children’s social care report outlines.

Remote working isn’t a problem – clinging to office-based practices is a problem | Alexia Cambon
Do we need to go to offices? Work 9 to 5? At this unique moment in history, employers can rethink everythingThere have been few moments in the history of work as pivotal as the one we find ourselves in now. It took a pandemic to normalise remote working, and, despite the fears of many CEOs, most organisations saw no demonstrable loss of productivity. Now, the global workforce is demanding its right to retain the autonomy it gained through increased flexibility as societies open up again. Pre-pandemic, it was not uncommon for an employer to ask staff to justify their need to work from home. Post-pandemic, employees may ask employers to justify the need to come into the office.Yet many organisations are still resisting this more flexible future. They argue that employees’ wellbeing is compromised by remote working, and that unless they are brought back into the office, many more will suffer from “Zoom fatigue”. Continue reading...
