All those ‘teleworking is the new normal’ predictions? Not so much, say bosses

No surprise there

I don't think it was ever in doubt that those industries or businesses with a high dose of control-freak manglement can't wait to people back under their eyeballs.

Short term it will work, because many will just be glad to continue to have jobs.

But if/when things improve, now that employees have tasted that freedom, they'll jump ship as soon as they can. "Do you offer WFH" will become a standard question, I reckon. Micromanagers will answer no at their peril - because it will be seen as a warning sign that you *are* interviewing with a micromanager!
