Only the Best

“The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.”
― Theodore Roosevelt

My question for employers is: Do you want the best talent, or do you want the best talent that lives nearby or will relocate, and will make the commute every day?

If you don’t hire and keep the best talent, someone else will take them. And that company will win.

If you want the best people, give them flexibility.

Don’t measure butts-in-seats. Measure meaningful results.

Some jobs require or work better on-site. Think hard about the tradeoffs.
