A Plan for Heading Back To The Office
Robert Half, the global staffing firm, recently published a study that stated 1 in 3 of the more than 500 worker respondents were ready to quit if they had to return to the office. As the U.S. opens back up with vaccinations, business leaders face real consequences caused by the disruption of 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.
However, the reality of workers who would prefer not to return to the office suggests more profound dissatisfaction than returning to the place of business. Sure, the pandemic and uncertainty for many workers meant that some companies allowed for remote or flexible office and virtual work opportunities. My team decided early during the pandemic in 2020 that, given a chance, we would have people come into the office. The discussions were empowering for the team.
