With the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic still spreading throughout the United States and the world, companies have had to make adjustments, particularly as it relates to employees working out of the office. GoDaddy, with more than 9,000 employees, has had the bulk of its employees work from home since March of this year.
GoDaddy recently announced that most of its employees will continue to work from home through at least March of 2021. In areas of the world where working in the office is deemed safe, the company is allowing employees to return to the office. For example, employees in GoDaddy’s China office have already returned to the office.
Some of GoDaddy’s employees have jobs that require them to work onsite. For instance, data center technicians have been working in GoDaddy’s data centers under strict health protocols to keep safe.
Since the pandemic began, I have had quite a few phone calls with GoDaddy employees for everything from DTVS calls to questions about my account. There were definitely some hiccups during the first few weeks as the company began transitioning to a WFH environment for its employees. Since then, I think many of the issues have been worked out and things have been operating smoothly from a customer perspective.
From what I have come to know about GoDaddy and its corporate team-focused culture, I doubt a work from home environment is ideal for most of its employees and I don’t think it is sustainable beyond the pandemic. That said, the teams I regularly communicate with seem to be handling the transition quite well.

Is that true?
Yes, Have you read any news that isn’t Alex Jones?
I don’t know, John. Why don’t you ask Donald and Melania.
It is more stressful working at home than be in the office.
You are being watched and your keystrokes are being scrutinized.

GoDaddy’s revenue in 2019 was $2.9 billion
HP’s Ink & Toner revenue in 2016 was $11.8 billion
HP’s total revenue in 2019 of $58 billion is from production of personal computers, printers, and cartridges.
GoDaddy employees can do from home what HP’s 56,000 employees cannot.
I’m not saying Domino’s drivers should bake the pizza’s at home, like BullS said quality control of tele reps occurs wherever their setting.
Interesting – “most of it’s employees” – My son in AZ is being required to return on Monday, Jan 4th at risk of his job. As a high risk person, he now has no options – At the height of the spread right now it is insanity to require workers back into a building with the vaccine at least 3-6 months away. Or is this a crowd-thinning exercise?
