I'd like to know how many people here who refuse to hire remotely are willing and can provide a proper working environment to their engineers: ie-> single, private offices, 4k monitors, adjustable desks chairs, etc. Or are these people forcing people to work onsite in substandard conditions simply so that there can be "spontaneous" conversations, aka pointless distractions like I read in most of the comments?

How can such conditions be 'substandard' if they are the norm, and thus, presumably, 'standard'?
