Google VP to work remotely from New Zealand while regular staff denied remote work options

The rancor intensified last week, when Urs Hölzle, one of the company’s longest-tenured and most senior executives, announced plans to work remotely from New Zealand, according to an email he sent to employees that was viewed by CNET.

Hölzle’s plans angered rank-and-file workers, who consider it special treatment for company leadership, while lower-level employees have had to wade through a drawn-out and uncertain application process.

Like most public health related policies, the elite are exempt from even corporate public health policies.

And the irony – Hölzle had been adamantly opposed to allowing remote workers.
