CASE: HON EY W E LL
Honeywell has a history of evolving through acquisitions into high growth sectors of related
business, and there is no indication that this trend is slowing. In fact, the company has placed
increased emphasis on software and other businesses that address challenges related to energy,
security, safety, productivity, and urbanization. However, while Honeywell continues to grow
and evolve, the company also faces mounting pressure in some of its businesses and has reacted
with initiatives intended to control costs and increase company performance. As an example,
Honeywell’s Aerospace Division responded to an extended slowdown in the aerospace industry
by laying off employees in 2015 and 2016. The division also implemented weeklong furloughs
(unpaid time off) for employees not involved in manufacturing and sales.
Honeywell also believes that improvements in company performance require teamwork, idea
sharing, and faster decision making, and that this is best accomplished through face-to-face interaction among employees. To facilitate this, the company decided to end its telecommuting option
for employees not involved in sales or field service. Honeywell had permitted employees to work
remotely, at home if they wished, for several reasons. First, Honeywell employees are based in
more than a thousand sites in over 70 countries, and they often work on important projects with
other employees who may be located half-way across the world. The projects may be engaging,
but trying to coordinate across time zones can be quite difficult during normal working hours.
Second, telecommuting allows employees to work when and where they feel they are most
productive. Employees who work remotely can chose to avoid the daily commute, office politics
and distractions, and the hassle of accomplishing nonwork demands. Finally, telecommuting is
very popular with millennial engineers and scientists who are comfortable using technology to
collaborate and who have other employment options.
The change in Honeywell’s long-standing policy will be especially difficult for employees who
have built their lives around the flexibility of working remotely. As an example, choices regarding
where to live may haunt employees who now face the prospect of commuting back and forth
to distant Honeywell offices each day. To some Honeywell employees, however, there may be a
bright side to the change in policy. After putting in their 40 hours in the office and commuting
each day, employees may not feel as compelled to deal with work-related issues that come up in
the evenings or on weekends
5.1 Describe how the change in Honeywell’s telecommuting policy likely influenced the types of
work stressors experienced by the company’s employees. How has the change in policy likely
influenced nonwork stressors?
5.2 Given the change in stressors resulting from the change in the telecommuting policy, what can
you predict about the commitment and job performance of Honeywell’s employees? Explain.
5.3 Identify steps that Honeywell could take to mitigate the potential for negative consequences
resulting from the change in the company’s telecommuting policy.
