You were forced to do that, you wouldn't have done that if there wasn't a pandemic.

Not everyone is lucky enough to have a job which can be done from home.

Productivity will go down as people dick around at home, justifying how they can look after the kids whilst "working" online. Zoom/Teams etc are poor substitutes for the interactions required to make success. Businesses will return to office working.

We have appalling productivity already and now they're encouraging a further drop!

My productivity is almost impossible to maintain at home with constant interruptions from family members, the TV blaring in the next room and the dreaded fridge calling to me all day long!

Stress levels are through the roof.

And my health and wellbeing has deteriorated dramatically over the winter.

But no large organization has actually reported that.. have they :)

The only people who need offices 5 days a week (that's an important distinction) are the armies of non productive, mostly male middle aged managers who try to 'adopt' younger workers as surrogate kids, their own children being total strangers. 'In return for the fast track, be my work son to bully' It's the most creepy thing ever

Umm not for me, US WFH workers have experienced longer hrs and a cut in pay. Already there is talk of re-negotiating contracts and even zero hours for WFH crew. I'm lucky no kids and close to office so I can get myself in early, stay late, its working for me. I'm already on the post lockdown BBQ invite from the top office. Next year I'll be in the top office not just their BBQ! WFH if you need to.
