What is the true reason that people want to work fully remote? I understand saving time/money on commute and still being able to get the work done at home but I’m not getting why some just absolutely DONT want to go to the office at all. Genuinely curious. (FYI I work a hybrid schedule)

Hello RSM coworkers! I am thrilled to be moving to RSM into a Scheduler roll. I just found out yesterday and want to be as prepared as possible in the next steps.
So here are my questions.
How long does the background study take? I'm guessing admin staff have a study that is faster and less complicated than someone in Tax ect.
When training at home what did you need that wasn't supplied by RSM? My home office is well stocked but I want to be as prepared as possible.
Thanks in advance!

Any recommendations for a home office good chair ? Have some left over wellness subsidy I could use as well
Has anyone gone so far as to splurge on a tier 1 office chair like the Steelcase Gesture? If so, your honest feedback/review would be appreciated.
My logic is if I spend so much of my typical work week sitting on a chair, why not go the extra mile and make it something comfortable and good for posture. Also, the cheaper chairs seem always to wear down faster than anticipated.

anyone else exhausted by the constant dialogue around mental wellness in the workplace this year? Never ending emails/about making space, mental health benefits, etc. I’ve already received 2 emails this week, one was resent to me asking to brainstorm more ideas support the team through “tough times”. I think I’ve been good about checking in with teams, pushing back on clients as best I can, making accommodations for those who’ve asked for them - but the incessant pressure to manage others’

I’m starting a women’s group (the first one ever) at my company with a colleague of mine. Since this happens to be February that we are starting this up I would be remiss if I didn’t address badass black women, I’m putting together resources including books, podcast, nonprofits to donate and support, articles to read (mainly around black women and tech to keep it relevant to our industry). Thoughts on anything to add/tips? Any guidance would be amazing as I don’t have any from HR really.

Is there anyone that works for Gallagher Basset as a claims adjuster and willing to share their experience? I’ve been receiving quite a bit of contact from multiple recruiters over the past several months. I am concerned from reviews I’ve read and it appears they have a very high turnover rate.

So, bought a sideshow from Advisorslides. Looks nice. Gives a series of 6 steps to address the topic. Slides go through steps 1 to 4. Nothing for the others. Red flag. I send them a note and also point out a grammatical error. Red flag. Now they tell me they gave me an old download and sent a new one. Grammar error fixed, but a footnote is wrong. Still not slides for steps 5 and 6. They say it is so I can customize myself. There's no blank slides indicating that. Continued...
