When I wrote my emails to our employees that did make me feel better in the sense that 1,000 people wrote back to me with moving stories about how personal this is for them, and what I was surprised by after both emails was the number of people the number of employees of an American tech company that feel vulnerable.
Can I take an assignment in the US? Am I going to be treated right? The handful saying “My family is questioning why I would work for an American company.” There’s another side to the fiduciary responsibility thing. In a business like ours where the majority of our employees are outside the US, a bunch of stuff like this is not good for our business in any way.
