SVB Employees Blame Work At Home For Bank Failure. I suppose it was inevitable. The companies who are struggling to get their employees to come back to work needed ammunition. Hey, why not blame the bankruptcy of SVB on remote workers? If the workers had better interpersonal communications, these failures wouldn’t occur! Hmmmm.. As a solo, I don’t have the luxury to blame my failures on colleagues who don’t show up for work. But, then again, I get to work wherever I want, so there’s that. It’s a poor workman who blames his tools; companies too. So, stop the blame game, and try managing your company better. Blame shifting is for sissies.
