A Third of Stitch Fix Employees Quit After New CEO Ends Flexible Work Hours – Slashdot (Me: Oops x 3 – ⅓ quit because new CEO did not bother to consult with employees)

The changes to the company’s scheduling policies led to an exodus of around a third of its stylists, part- and full-time employees who work from home selecting clothing items for customers. “It was a gut punch,” said Kara Calagera, who used the extra income from Stitch Fix to pay her mortgage and car insurance. Keeping the job “wasn’t feasible without the flexibility.” For years, Stitch Fix has attracted employees who — because they have part-time jobs, stay home with kids, or have a disability — needed flexible, remote work. Until now, the company allowed employees who could provide their own computer and internet to work from home, some for as little as five hours per week, recommending and sending Stitch Fix clothing to customers at any time of day. Source: A Third of Stitch Fix Employees Quit After New CEO Ends Flexible Work Hours – Slashdot
