The I in IBM stands for irony

by Volker Weber

IBM, the company that just weeks ago said it was doing away with its work-from-home policy, is now preaching the benefits of telecommuting to customers.

Big Blue's Smarter Workforce Group says a recent panel it hosted at the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) conference concluded that customers who work remotely are "more engaged, have stronger trust in leadership and much stronger intention to stay."

"These findings mirror what an IBM Smarter Workforce Institute study found," the group wrote.

It's pretty clear that IBM getting rid of the work-from-home policy is really a "how to get employees to fire themselves" policy.
... and they're only doing it in the countries they can get away with it in.

I am thinking of another substitute for 'I', personally.

Irony only happens to other people :-D

Please read carefully!
It clearly says "CUSTOMERS who work remotely are 'more engaged, have stronger trust in leadership and much stronger...'"
Doesn't say IBM employees.
