Depends on the company. Some are itching to get the drones back in their cages to justify management's existence. Other places are saying employees can work from home forever if they wish. MY GIRLFRIEND works for a health care company and has been working from home since last April. They recently announced employees likely won't be going back to the offices this year. My former employer Zappos has allowed people to leave the Las Vegas area (where they are headquartered) and work remotely. They also laid of 250ish people that couldn't work from home and are looking to rent out space to other companies in their downtown Las Vegas headquarters. They have no plans of returning to the office any time soon.Does anyone predict office drones going back to the skyscrapers after corona is managed? Or has this year shown that working from home works just as well and is cheaper in the long run?
My worry is a lot of these companies start offshoring jobs if they can't have their drones to lord over in the office.
