We’re excited to share that Kevin Davis has been quoted in CNBC! The article, For better or Worse, Working From Home is Here to Stay, discusses the pros and cons of working from home. It starts off by providing an insight into various tech companies and their work from home policies. The running theme being that for many companies, the option to work from home is here to stay. Kevin is introduced as a counter to this argument, asserting that the connections and social capital that new hires attain from the in-person interaction is hard to replicate over Zoom.
“For a new person, it’s much more difficult to establish close and strong connections,” said Kevin Davis, founder and executive director of First Workings, a nonprofit that helps students from underserved communities in New York secure paid internships and mentorships in the business community.
“That’s the sort of social capital that money can’t buy.”
