Interesting piece - pointing out that workers save money with WFH, but also that they're setting up work/life boundaries and companies don’t like that.
Getting back to the office comes at a cost, but who will pay?

Working from home is obviously something we should keep going and improve. The bourgeoisie trying to herd people back into the office is evidence of that.

But without an increase in 'Third Space' infrastructure in local environments, then we risk ramping up loneliness, and further crumbling of the social fabric.

The office, for all it's faults, did have a semblance of important community-building aspects which isn't replicated with working from home.

Shame to see Unity and Weta splitting up, but this is a nice upside from a bad situation "Unity will no longer mandate that employees work from offices three a days a week".

So confused. It wasn't all that long ago that #Conservative ministers were complaining that no-one should #WorkFromHome (probably because it reduced commercial property revenue in urban areas)

The #UK #Government is so disconnected from real-life that they aren't even aware that #WFH doesn't necessarily mean you work AT home. Even if you can find a #job you're qualified for, many #workfromhome #jobs require going out to #clients or some type of #travel. Even #online jobs often require some time in the #office or similar. It really does feel like this #country is now doomed.

"In the ongoing, heated debate about the costs and benefits of #RemoteWork, a pivotal advantage often goes underappreciated. The ability to quickly transition a workforce to remote work when necessary provides firms with an important form of flexibility — akin to an insurance policy. And that sort of flexibility will only become more critical in a warming world, where #ExtremeWeather is (sadly) becoming more common."

So if people, who showed they could work remotely & profitably during pandemic lock-downs #WFH, are forced to return to the office #RTO, it's only to pay business landlords, keep retail spending up, and increase carbon emissions for commuting. Why is this even a debate? It's the #ClimateCrisis stupid

Trying to come up with a name for an index that measures the number of 9am meetings I attend in the shirt that I slept in.


Returning to the office isn't about productivity or building a culture. It's about employer power and maintaining the previous status quo - to the detriment of their own businesses.

Here are some thoughts about what they should be doing instead:

WFH’ers -

What’s your favourite thing about WFH?


It effectively extends my working day by ~2.5h due to commute, but it does feel good to socialize a bit in person with the people I work with, and that's even with my social anxiety... 😅

And while I consider myself a strong proponent of #wfh I can't deny that certain activities are more efficient and/or practical to do in an office. It's just not enough of that type of work to fill several days for a lot of professions (like for software developers!)

About 15 years ago, some of my social media friends were having a discussion about where to find the best croissant in Toronto. I laughed because in fact almost all the places they discussed buy from the same (inferior IMO) bakery and resell them. Being the only #WFH person in the group, I cheekily suggested that not only did Costco have better product, but you could get 18 for the price of 2 at a cafe. The response: crickets. Now the discussion is on how to fit 18 croissant in the freezer. 😆

For those of you who do the indie work thing - do you find #invoicing unpleasant and procrastinate?

I've been doing it off and on for two decades but still put it off too much.

You'd think the "give me money" part would be the most fun, and we'd jump at the chance to do it, but I'm always slow to get it done.

#indie #consulting #wfh

An FT report suggests that #workingfromhome & more #hybridworking has led to two key changes for firms supporting staff's desire to continue #WFH for some of the week.

1: they are making their #offices more flexible & welcoming, to encourage staff to use them for collaborative activities (not so well done #online);

2: they are migrating their offices to better connected more central locations to make travel in easier when it is needed.

The 2nd is the opposite direction that many expected!

Feeling very frustrated and defeated. I need #remote #wfh jobs and I've already started seeing two upsetting patterns:

1. Companies only want to let people work from home as a reward for good performance at the office

2. Companies who don't subscribe to the first pattern seem to think that they don't have to pay anyone working from home.

My #disability has become worse with #mobility and #pain since the car accident. So I need a remote job but one that pays enough for my expenses.

So what exactly is it that so many #managers seem to fear about the rise of #workingfromhome?

I have two answers for you:

1. #WFH increases #workers autonomy, as they're not under constant potential surveillance & work to their own arrangement(s); Managers feel threatened by this avoidance of direct control;

2. data on WFH seems to indicate workers are happier when hybrid working than when in the office full-time; whatever, they say, managers prefer fearful workers who're easier to manage
