Does Work From Home means less money for employees?

As many of us transition to work from home, especially in the sales world, a question continues to come up amongst my network and as I make budget decisions for hiring.


The response is unclear.


The Pickle:


Typically companies determine compensation on a number of factors.


Geography often plays a reasonable sized role in determining the salaried offering for a particular role?


With greater work from home capability and companies adopting more of a global workforce, will the geographic influence on compensation matter less?


Example:


A company pays its New York City based employees 10% more on salary versus in upstate New York because of geographic premium.


THOUGHTS?!

Should geography still matter when it comes to employee compensation?

I think it will impact other roles more than sales roles. Looking at my sales team, our offered base and OTE is the same for every rep. Each rep lives in their territory and have always been considered remote employees. I am considered one myself, but I live near the office so I do go in a few times a week when we are allowed to be there.ย 

Sales has always been considered a pseudo remote position because of the travel aspect

Of course, but I feel a lot of roles will be outsourced to cheaper workforce. Like support for example.
