  1. Last job I had, I was the only one in the office. The company did investigations for insurance claims and the adjusters were encouraged to work wherever they could get on the internet. Some would come in the office because it made it easier to focus, but others because coming into the office was a hassle would work from home.

    The boss (who was in another state) made some noise about consolidating into a smaller physical space, but never provided any guidance, so it never happened. Until they closed the office in a Covid cutback and let me go.

  2. The corporation I work for, who's office staff is mostly working from home, is a fraction as efficient as the company was pre-COVID. Is there less efficiency because the office folk work from home? I don't know, t it feels like it to me. Maybe my opinion is biased because us lower income workers have to be at the factory and the higher-ups are working from home.

  3. It's got to be a balance people! If everyone works from home it's not just weworks out of business. It's offices just sitting empty, restaurants, coffee shops, gyms, transportation use, and more – all down – which means less JOBS. I live in one of the nicest suburbs outside of Chicago and the amount of people moving to the burbs from the city is crazy. These are the people who can afford to leave. This will only create less opportunity for the ones who can't afford to leave. Our cities could end up just like Detroit if we don't consider the whole picture.

  4. I work in IT… Regardless where I'm at, in an office, at home, on a beach, I'm ALWAYS working remote. The servers I work on our in multiple states, and none of them are the state I live in. My company is already starting to put plans together to get people back in the office, and surprise, no one on my team wants to "volunteer". Of course management is leaning on us hard to get back into an office, stopping just short of demanding it. For example, in my office, on my team, there are literally only two people that work in my specific office, and of course management wants two "volunteers" to be guinea pigs to see how being in the office is post-pandemic. We're being assured they'll be doing cleaning and enforcing some kind of social distancing, etc… Ya know what makes all of that super simple? Let those who don't want to go into an office NOT GO INTO AN OFFICE. If you want to be there, more power to ya, but I was already working from home for months before Covid, and have no intention to return, I fought for 3 years to be able to work form home on the regular. Not to mention the fact that I already spend obscene amounts of time working, and don't need to add 2-4 hours of commute time on top of that again.
