I work in a large government agency. Staff have been working from home since May. It was recently decreed that everyone is expected to work from the office at least 60% of the time next year.
Management have ignored all the benefits that have become apparent from WFH, such as improved mental and physical wellbeing, saving time and money on public transport, increased flexibility, etc., all the while maintaining (if not improving) productivity and staying safe.
Practical matters such as staff needing to take crowded public transport back to work or caring for family members more vulnerable to Covid have been ignored.
Anyone else work for an organisation that likes to claim it's modern and progressive while being the exact opposite?
