Stripe, fast - growing fintech payments company, has an interesting deal for its employees. They could pay 20 000 to relocate from high - price cities to lower - cost locations. Sounds good, right? Heres catchthe workers who take up the offer will have to take a 10% cut to their compensation. The Covid - 19 pandemic has forced companies to rethink the way people work. Before the virus outbreak, it was understood that the vast majority of employees would work within the confines of a traditional office setting. There were people who work from home, but it was a relatively smaller number and many of those still continue to spend at least some days at the office. To stem the spread of disease, companies recognize the need to decentralize their staff. Working from home has become the new standard. One major corporation after another announces their plans for remote work. As time progress, it seems that they start outdoing each other, offering extended remote options until summer of 2021. Some companies, such as Twitter, provide a chance for staff to work remotely forever. In light of the challenging economy and uncertainty about the future, executives know that they have to worry about managing their corporate finances. Maintaining large office spaces in cities, such as New York and San Francisco, is extremely expensive and taxes are astronomical. Having people work from their own homes or in lower - cost cities is an attractive option for chief financial officers to shave off large expenditures and save money. In addition to Stripe, other companies have made similar - type offers. Vmwarea, California - based publicly traded software company that provides cloud computing and virtualization software and services, announced that employees who work remotely will get a pay cut if they move out of Silicon Valley to live in less - costly cities. According to Bloomberg, employees who work at VMware's Palo Alto, California, headquarters and go to Denver, for example, must accept an 18% salary reduction. Leaving Silicon Valley for Los Angeles or San Diego means relinquishing 8% of their annual pay. Rich Lang, VMwares senior vice president of human resources, offers a positive alternative. When a person relocates and works remotely, they could get raise if they choose to move to a larger or more expensive city. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg vowed to allow his employees to continue working remotely. Zuckerberg say, were going to be the most forward - leaning company on remote work at our scale. Employees will have to tell their bosses if they are moving to a different location. Zuckerberg forewarns his personnel, saying those who flee to lower - cost cities may have their compensation adjusted based on their new locations. The Chief executive add, Well, adjust salary to your location at that point. Therell be severe ramifications for people who are not honest about this. Just as there is heated debate over reopening the economy too quickly, there are contradicting actions of leading corporations that reflect reticence to fully embracing the work - from - home revolution. Google, Amazon and Facebook have recently lease, built or purchased corporate real estate, bucking remote movement.

Relocated

Payments company Stripe is reportedly cutting pay for employees who move outside of Seattle, New York, or the Bay Area, but will also offer those employees 20 000 to relocate, according to Bloomberg. Workers could take up to a 10% reduction in salary if they relocate. The offer will be available until the end of 2020, Bloomberg reports. Vmware, Facebook, and Twitter will also reevaluate compensation for anyone who opts to move outside of the Bay Area as offices remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Payments company Stripe has reportedly started offering new deals to its employees based in major cities: move out of New York, Seattle, or the Bay Area and take a pay cut but also receive a 20 000 bonus. That's according to a report from Bloomberg's Anders Melin, who reports that Stripe employees may see as much as 10% cut to their base salary for relocating, and that offer will be available to anyone who decides to move before the end of 2020. A Spokesperson for Stripe did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment. Several other tech companies have started examining employee pay as more workers leave expensive cities like San Francisco for places with lower cost of living and more space. Software company VMware, which has said its employees may work remotely on a permanent basis, has decided to reduce salaries of those who have moved to less expensive cities by as much as 18%, according to a recent Bloomberg report. In late May, Facebook announced that it would allow employees to work from home on a permanent basis, but that the company will adjust pay based on where they choose to live beginning in January, according to the New York Times. Twitter had already been moving toward a decentralized workforce and had a policy in place that localized pay based on where employees live. During an appearance on Boardroom: Out of Office podcast last month, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said that the rise of the internet should have made employees ' location irrelevant, and that the company had been mulling shifts to remote work before the coronavirus. The reason why is like, every entrepreneur I talk to that's doing something internet - related today, they re starting their own companies not having office, not having headquarters, not having requirement that everyone has to be in San Francisco, Dorsey says on podcast. No one wants to move to San Francisco anymore, no one can afford to live in San Francisco anymore, so they are re hiring people all over the country, all over the world. At Stripe, company has been shifting toward more remote work for over a year. In May 2019, company will launch a remote engineering hub, which the company says is on par with its physical spaces in Seattle, San Francisco, Singapore, and Dublin. Hub employs 100 engineers as of May 2020, and Stripe says that 22% of its total population of engineers works remotely.

Less hospitable

Meanwhile, tech centre San Francisco has become less hospitable to some companies. Last year, voters passed a new tax on businesses that will go to fund homelessness relief efforts, and tax financial services companies at a higher rate than other types of businesses. The Stripes ' decision to leave the city was widely regarded by local officials as related to the passage of the new tax. Companies, which strongly oppose the measure, deny that taxes were a major factor in the decision to move. Stripe instead points to limited office space in San Francisco. Citys asking prices for commercial rent, which are highest in the nation, climbed 7 per cent over last year to record levels in the third quarter, according to real estate firm Cushman and Wakefield. And adding to the region's woes: in recent months, fires caused widespread power outages in homes around the Bay Area. Still, none of the fintech unicorns Bloomberg spoke to have plans to move their headquarters away from the West Coast. Stripe, while hiring a few hundred people in New York, currently has more than 1 000 employees in Silicon Valley.

Lower valuations

San FRANCISCO Even though high - flying start - ups have met cool reception on Wall Street in recent months, willingness of investors to make big bets has not exactly slacken. Stripe, start - up that helps businesses do wonky work of taking payments, announced on Thursday that it had pulled in new investments that give it a value of 35 billion, making it one of the most valuable start - ups in the world, worth more than prominent names like Airbnb and DoorDash. The Young Irish brothers who founded Stripe have quietly built their company by making it easier for online businesses to take payments from customers and move money around the world. Payments have long been fertile territory for Internet companies like PayPal and Square because business can provide a reliable stream of revenue from 2 to 3 percent charge that is collected on every credit card swipe. That revenue allows payment start - ups to grow without the same giant investments needed for companies like WeWork and Uber that are reliant on physical infrastructure. In its latest fund - raising round, Stripe collected 250 million, which is tiny compared with what WeWork and others needed to reach their own hefty valuations. Stripe has a focus on developers who are actually building new websites. That has won it business of many of the largest Internet companies, including Facebook, Google, Shopify and Lyft. We realize that because Internet businesses tend to move more quickly, we need to move more quickly than traditional finance system, President of Stripe, John Collison, said in an interview on Thursday. The new fund - raising round makes Stripe more valuable than many public companies, including its competitor, Square, which was worth 10 billion less than Stripe on Thursday. Stripe is part of a broader trend of companies waiting longer to go public, in part because of ever - increasing pools of funds that are now available from venture capital investors. The latest fund - raising round came from some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley, such as Andreessen Horowitz, Sequoia and General Catalyst. The decision to stay private has allowed Stripe to remain secretive about how it earns money and how much its different businesses have grow. The company do say on Thursday, though, that it is now processing hundreds of billions of dollars of transactions a year. Stripe has avoided going public, Mr. Collison say, because executives think the company is still in its early days, with enormous opportunities for expansion. He likes to cite the figure that even today, less than 8 percent of commerce happens online. In recent weeks, Stripe has pushed from its roots in payments with the introduction of Stripe Capital, which offers loans to Stripe customers, and Stripe Corporate credit Card. Companies have also been expanding around the globe, adding eight new countries this month. The Collison brothers, John and Patrick, sold their first company when they were 19 and 17 and began Stripe two years later after dropping out of MIT and Harvard and joining Y Combinator accelerator for early start - ups.
