Back to the Office!

I continue to see workplaces that have far too many people working from home and which underestimate the price that is paid for that practice. Team morale, friendships, the informal exchange of information, mentoring, and other intangibles are diminished in an atmosphere that is mainly transactional and which fails to recognize that a job is more than behavior for rent.

Workplaces that straddle the fence between Normal and "New Normal" (whatever that is) will find their employees suffer from the indecision. 

Diminished relationships are the main victims. In a world where loneliness is a grave problem, that is no small wound.
