How To Build A Better Relationship With Your Boss While Working From Home

It’s an obvious reality that having a good relationship with one’s boss is a great enabler of career success. After all, they’re the person most likely to vouch for us in terms of promotions, great performance reviews, exciting project opportunities, and more. When you’re working from home, however, building that employee-boss relationship can require a few tweaks.

The good news is that the fundamental quality of boss relationships is similar to the pre-pandemic world. In Leadership IQ’s study, The State Of Working From Home In 2020, 58% of people say that their relationship with their boss is the same working from home or in an office, so a lot of us haven’t seen much change. However, 27% say their relationship with their boss is much, or a little, better when they were working in an office. And 16% say their relationship with their boss is better now that they’re

Beleaguered, Scandal-Ridden Deutsche Bank Calls For A Socialistic Tax Levied Against People Working From Home

Scandal-plagued German-based bank Deutsche Bank, the go-to financial institution for Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, reported that people who are working from home must be taxed.

Deutsche Bank, which paid out over $18 million in fines for alleged violations of securities rules and regulations, commissioned a report that proposes individuals who work from home should be assessed a 5% income tax for this “privilege.” The money from the tax will be redistributed to workers who are not working from home.  

As part of its “Rebuild” report, the German bank rationalizes the extra tax—which will be on top of all of the other taxes levied on people—will end up making things even, since it claims the workers save a considerable amount of money by being at home. Meanwhile, the bank announced roughly 18,000 layoffs and told its employees to work from home.

How To Ramp Up The Economic Recovery With A Working From Home Tax

A Deutsche Bank (DB) survey found that after the Covid-19 crisis has passed, remote work will still be part of the new normal. They argue that remote workers should pay a tax for the privilege to help recover the economy. How would this tax impact CFO’s 2021 planning?

The proportion of Americans working from home before the pandemic was only at 5.4%.

During the pandemic, the proportion increased to 56%. As many of these people will continue to work remotely, at least for some time, the research express that “remote workers are contributing less to the infrastructure of the economy while still receiving its benefits.”

Remote workers have gained many benefits during the pandemic, so the researchers estimate a 5% tax for each WFH day (that is around $10 per day for an average salary of $55,000 a year) “would leave the average person no worse off than if

Deutsche Bank proposes a 5% tax for people still working from home after the pandemic

  • A Deutsche Bank survey found more than half of workers wanted to continue working from home for the 2-3 days a week after the pandemic.
  • According to the Deutsche Bank Research report, a 5% tax rate on those days on the average salary of a remote worker could raise $48 billion a year in the U.S., £6.9 billion in the U.K. and 15.9 billion euros in Germany.
  • This would cover the costs of grants for people who can’t work from home and are on lower incomes.

A research team at Deutsche Bank proposed that people pay a 5% tax for the “privilege” of working from home, if they continue to do so after the pandemic, as this could subsidize income lost by lower-earners due to the coronavirus crisis.

Working From Home? Here’s How To Better Integrate Your Professional And Personal Self

Jennifer Wines, Vice President at Fidelity Private Wealth Management

The acceleration of the work-from-home culture over the past few months has required lots of logistical and emotional gymnastics. Seemingly overnight, we invited our corporate computers into our homes. Many corporate employees, including myself, rearranged their homes and routines to transition to this different mode of working and living. Further, the accelerated adoption of remote work has affected many industries, including my own — finance, an industry traditionally known for its formality and rigid structure.

After a few months of sorting out our new work-from-home routines, we discovered that productivity can in fact happen from the comfort of our homes (some more comfortable than others). Now, with this foundational realization in place, we have a golden opportunity to pivot our attention to a more meaningful challenge, and that is the fuller integration of our professional and personal selves.
