I'm an engineer doing environmental compliance.

We're in the middle of a global pandemic. if the President is still not on board with WFH that's a red flag. Does your boss or the COO have any advice to help calm his higher ups? Usually they have their own ways to manage their manager's fears.

The president of my company is the top of the pile. He's not comfortable and there's no one who can make him comfortable. This is NOT a red flag that my position or the Company is in danger. It's just a fact that an old school person owns and runs the company. Thanks for your input though.

Authentically helping from a human perspective.

My advice is to write out your job description and how you will fulfill all of your job duties from home. Give hours of availability, metrics and ways to hold you accountable for success (I know you'll make it happen!). Put it all in writing, anticipating any issues that could arise from not having you in the office. Perhaps suggest a 1-2 month trial period of WFH and then evaluating your performance at the end of the trial to see if making the arrangement permanent works for both sides.

Yeah, I've done at least some of this. My COO is ok with remote but the President is leery. I need to find ways to calm him. Thanks though!
