Confession: I don’t want to go back to the office.
As the pandemic gets curbed, offices are figuring out what policies to enact. Some companies
are offering permanent work-from-home (WFH) while others are offering partial.
COVID-19 accelerated the trend towards remote work and showed that it’s possible for information workers to do so while maintaining similar levels of productivity. This benefits both employers and employees.
Employees can stay home to watch their kids and have more flexible schedules to run errands during the week in between quick breaks. They can also freshly cook lunch instead of bringing leftovers or buying food.
Employers can save on commercial real estate along with the costs of maintaining a physical office.
But I’m guessing people don’t want to be completely alone at home. This might give co-working companies like WeWork a chance to make a comeback.
