Now that working from home is no longer the default, we have people heading back and seeing each other face-to-face in like…a year?
I understand the physical interactions can never be replicated virtually. My industry is one of those that never embrace work from home concept. So essentially, I’m nearly always in the office while the rest of the population are based at home.
Not that my work has to be done in the office, but such is the culture in my industry that they see real work can only be done in the office. And it must be done before the bosses’ eyes.
But moving beyond COVID-19, should we question if there’s a real need to be in the office everyday?
Because the act of going to a place, 5 times a week, to open a laptop and do things that can be done at home, is a bizarre concept.
