We’re excited to announce our new Replicated home office reimbursement program, and thought it would be best to outline the thinking and work that went into this new policy.
Like many of our peers, in 2020 we decided to take our team fully remote. We let go of our LA-based office and began to hire as a fully remote company throughout the US ( we’re hiring.. A LOT.. btw ). To us, that meant being able to hire the best talent wherever they chose to live. For the majority of our team members, this transition to fully remote meant they were now working from home, setting up the environments needed to feel comfortable and productive.
We thought about the fact that most of the home office setup involved actual expenses for the employee and then thought about the savings from letting go of our physical office. It was a no-brainer for us to look at how we could invest those savings into taking the financial burden off our employees.
It was an idea I was excited about and when our VP of People, Melina Murray, joined, she was equally enthused by the idea and took on the project immediately. And so, as part of that transition and to illustrate our commitment to creating the best possible work environment for our team, in May we officially launched our “Home Office Reimbursement Program”. Replicated reimburses all employees for various expenses related to setting up and maintaining their home office, or getting a co-working space, up to $10,000 per year, per employee.
