Spotify gives total freedom to work remotely from anywhere with salaries from San Francisco
Spotify has announced that he will be completely flexible with telecommuting after the pandemic. Your employees will be able to choose in which work modality they want to carry out their tasks -office, remote or hybrid-, the city and country in which they want to do it -no matter that there are no company headquarters in that region- and they will keep the full salary they had in their original positions.
This last measure, that of salaries, contrasts with the announcements of other large technology companies such as Facebook or Twitter, which previously announced their intention to extend teleworking to employees who wanted to, but adapting their salaries to the places where they decided to move. Spotify, on the other hand, you will maintain the high salaries of areas like San Francisco or New York no matter where your employees decide to go, as reported Business Insider.
The music application announced last Friday its intention to give its employees total freedom to work from wherever they want when the pandemic ends. The Swedes also explained that they will implement a series of benefits depending on the modality they choose. For example, Whoever wants to work in a city where the company does not have an office, Spotify will pay a subscription in a coworking space.
How does it work
Spotify has explained that employees will have to communicate to those responsible for their teams in which mode they want to work and where they want to do it. What’s more, they must commit to the options they choose for at least one year. Otherwise, the only limitation is that the worker is in a time zone that allows him to adapt to the work of his reference office.
From the music application they explain that they are aware that they will encounter difficulties along the way and will have to modify some of the points of this new program, but they consider that this is the best way to continue to evolve in line with your long-term business culture.
“We have considered that lhe labor law, taxes and insurance are ready for our workforce to work from anywhere. We will share more about this as we move forward, “they said.
