Work from home, office or hybrid?

Mandated Policy

  1. Back to the office annoys people who prefer working from home.
  2. Stay at home annoys people who prefer going to the office.
  3. Hybrid annoys people who don’t see a compelling, data driven need to back to an office regularly to do a job that can be done from home (and it’s greener). It may not be the long term answer either. My commute is 400 miles each way regardless of being in the office 3 days a week or 5.
