Netflix's Reed Hastings Deems Remote Work 'a Pure Negative'

From an interview:

WSJ : What elements of the Netflix culture are tougher to maintain now that so many employees are working from home?
Mr. Hastings : Debating ideas is harder now.

WSJ : Have you seen benefits from people working at home?
Mr. Hastings : No. I don’t see any positives. Not being able to get together in person, particularly internationally, is a pure negative. I’ve been super impressed at people’s sacrifices.

WSJ : It’s been anticipated that many companies will shift to a work-from-home approach for many employees even after the Covid-19 crisis. What do you think?
Mr. Hastings : If I had to guess, the five-day workweek will become four days in the office while one day is virtual from home. I’d bet that’s where a lot of companies end up.
