From the Washington Post we have a couple of quotes from REI plans sale of unused eight-acre headquarters campus as the retailer embraces remote work, and I’m not going to go in the order they are placed: “If you’re like me, you miss the sense of community. You miss hallway conversations. You miss in-person work-sessions,” Artz wrote. But “this year has shown us our home is not a building. Our home is wherever we find ourselves doing our best work, pursuing our outdoor passions, serving our communities.” Which is a very well meaning sentiment but I don’t know if employees in other industries would feel the same. Of course sometimes these decisions are also a blessing in disguise, Ben Steele, REI’s chief customer officer, “Steele would not share specifics on the price that REI sought for the wholly owned land and buildings but said it expected to see a return on the investment.”
