Re: What data

"They just aren't making people come back to the office. Those who want to can. "

My experience (and that of many many other people in tech) is that a large proportion of jobs can be done anywhere with a laptop and a connection. Top-of-the-head estimate I would say at least 80% of tech jobs can be done at 80% out of the corporate office. A significant proportion could also be done at 100% out of the corporate office.

We now have had an extended trial period of 1 year+ of vast numbers of office workers doing their work away from the office, and the apocalypse hasn't happened.

So why, for effs sake, are we back in a place when companies would ever *require* people to be in the office??

"Those who want to can" should be the new model of office work in the foreseeable future.
