What kind of cell phone/internet reimbursement programs do your organizations offer? Any WFH stipends or other COVID related perks you've seen? I keep hearing from sellers they get all these things covered but no one else in the organization does, yet we all have to work from home and pay for these things anyway... like I'd for sure have a phone and internet even if I worked in a different field, job, etc...

I just want to hear the explanation for why staff who started during COVID are doing so badly on average (and I have heard this from every level including staff themselves) from the pro 100 percent work from home people. If you agree it’s real, what is your solution? If it can’t be fixed, are we just accepting that the people we expect to backfill our positions aren’t going to be ready?
