Here is a little story from my background
When I had come a good way into my career, I got a high position in a company where my executions would mean big changes for the company and the employees.
A few years earlier, I had been in the same situation but in a much larger international corporation and I was employed in the middle of an extensive reorganization of an entire corporation. The corporation would go from being divided into market areas to now being defined by business areas. Several thousands employees were forced to apply for their positions, again, both managers and employees. I got the job I was applying for and was grateful for it even though it meant 4 out of 5 travel days per week, several of my management colleagues were left out, because the business areas were fewer than the market areas.
For the employees, it became unsustainable for many, they were suddenly forced to travel almost 800 km to their workplaces, which were now scattered within the business area that ran throughout Sweden. Parents of young children would suddenly find themselves traveling from their home and family to their office, which could be 400 km away one week and maybe 600 km away another week. And that was where I was. I was the new Operating Director of the largest business area they now belonged to, and my job was to defend the expectations the corporation that paid their salaries now had on them. It was a difficult situation for all of the executives, because how could I motivate a parent of young children that it was reasonable to travel 400 km to work?
