Robinhood, a well-known trading app, recently announced that it will let most of its 3,000 employees work remotely permanently. After 2 years of working primarily from home, they announced that they would enable the staff to work from anywhere.
Most companies have been working remotely since the start of the pandemic. And in many cases, it helped them transform and change their working structure forever. While some are resistant to full-time remote work, others are becoming remote-first companies.
Robinhood: A Remote First Company
In December, the trading and technology company announced that they would be making new remote work arrangements in 2022. And a few days ago, they announced through a blog post that they are becoming a remote-first company that wants the best for their staff.
In the article, they mentioned:
“Our teams have done amazing work and built a strong workplace community during these uncertain and challenging times, and we’re excited to continue to offer them the flexibility they’ve asked for by staying primarily remote,”
Robinhood explained that they would provide employees with all the flexibility they need in the announcement. This means that they encourage employees to work where they feel most comfortable and productive.
There will be no location or in-office requirement for most of its employees. Teams will be able to go to vocational in-person gatherings for meetings that require more collaboration and to continue encouraging connection and innovation.
