When Should the Pandemic Work-From-Home Conclude
Most employees who have been working from home during the pandemic are being told they will return to the office (but we do not know when); the return will be gradual (though we do not know how gradual); the return will be safe (though, of course, no one can guarantee 100 per cent safety); and (most likely) the future will involve some combination of work-from-home and office work (though we cannot be any more specific than that).

That messaging (the "plan to make a plan") has been holding up so far, but it will not hold up forever.

Inevitably, the tides will shift, and companies will begin making long-term decisions about where their employees will work.
