Well-met in the Ka-tet
Well, let's see, who was it that said earlier in this thread...I don't buy it. Social distancing is only one step to mitigate the risk of transmission, you're still in contact with these people - you touch the same hard surfaces in the office regardless how spread out you are. It costs the company more money to keep up with constant cleanings and operating two SOCs than it would just giving people laptops and having them work from home. It is about employee safety and keeping the operation running, they go hand in hand. We're an asset that the company has invested both time and money in - it's in their best interest to keep us healthy and safe.
Which way are you trying to sell the idea of remote dispatching? Social distancing that is more expensive to the company, or cost savings for the company?The cost savings is coming from getting rid of office space and the associated costs - water, electricity, office supplies, liability insurance, building maintenance and security. Computer equipment is such a small cost when compared to other expenses with having people in an office.
I'm not sure why you're so "gung ho" on this concept, but all I can say is that they must make some really tasty Kool-Aid in Utah.
I don't! My employer has looked at and tested the work from home concept, and determined that it is NOT a safe way to dispatch airplanes. I'm glad I'm not working for *your* employer right now, though.Why do you work for an employer that you feel is always out to get you?
