One difference between this storm and Snowvember? More can work from home
BUFFALO, N.Y. (WBFO) — This weekend’s snowstorm is coming off Lake Erie on the eight-year anniversary of Snowvember, but there is one big difference between that storm and this one.
Following the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, many local companies have invested in tools to allow their employees to work from home. The Buffalo Niagara Partnership’s annual survey found 70% of its members have some form of permanent hybrid work plan.
“So, I think it will be different for those companies,” said BNP President CEO Dottie Gallagher. “But, of course, we have a lot of members who work in manufacturing and health care who can't work remotely.”
