Will Remote Workers Be Forced to Go Back to the Office Soon?
This survey shared by Costar shows the feelings of employees about where they work.
Even though I go to the office almost every day and enjoy being there, I guess I would have said “Hybrid” for myself because I work a portion of most mornings at home. I am sure employees want to keep the freedom that they have become accustomed to. The harsh reality is that employers are going to be making layoff decisions based on relationships and those who demonstrate they want to work.
Here is a paraphrased quote from a client that shows an employer perspective: “Rumors out here are Q1 is going to be super rough, which actually will help in a weird way as people will realize they need to hang on to their jobs. Then CEOs will get back in control of the company. I ended up laying off people earlier this year because they were just not working or had a real sense of entitlement. The tide is turning.”
