The ongoing remote vs return-to-work debate (nytimes)

What is your organization doing? We (as of early June) seeing a “test positivity rate” as high as 28% for COVID in our region (it was as low as 3% a couple months ago just before Omicron variant), but a low hospitalization rate.

The informatics team (my Large PIGs) are still exclusively meeting remotely.

We are actually writing this COVID pandemic textbook paragraph-by-paragraph together, my friends. There is no “playbook” for how to behave now.

One thought on “The ongoing remote vs return-to-work debate (nytimes)”

  1. With space still at a premium and rent not getting any cheaper (for now) I wonder how this will change the equation for workers and employers. For example, in order to keep your private desk/office employers may start asking workers to spend a minimum amount of time in the office. Does office workers then become like owners of second homes — spending just enough time there to avoid income property taxes? And who pushes this behavior – workers or middle managers? Who is more worried about losing space? Are there consequences to giving up space now when the pendulum inevitably swings toward more in person time (though we don’t know how wide that arc will be)?
