How do we feel about going in the office 3x a week? It’s mandatory.

Personally if there isn’t a necessity that the work be done in person collaboratively vs remote, I think it’s silly.

Well the argument is that the quality of work is not as high because people are not collaborating in person

Goodbye.
You want me to live within driving distance? Pay more. Anything more than once a month for a strategy session / team event? Pay more.
Want to see my face for more? Fly me in. Preferable to an onsite event in a nice hotel, one week a quarter.

Entirely antiquated thought. If an agency wants to keep their office open, just have it as a resource to use when needed. A mandated three days in thing has no real logic to it beyond old school capitalistic propaganda. I’d really be curious to hear an agency’s argument as to why it’s actually needed.

Lol, I go because it’s optional; if it was mandated I’d be futuous

I can understand maybe going in like once or twice a week? But it shouldn’t be mandatory.

For sure it should be a choice. Lots of people moved further out of cities during the pandemic and it’s fully possible to do the work from home, so there’s no real point to mandate being in the office. I mean, I personally enjoy going in every once in while when my city isn’t in lockdown lol.

Hard pass.

I’m in industry now and we’re still crafting our policy but it seems to be heading toward 1x per week for 3 weeks out of the month and 2x per week for 1 week per month. That seems about right to me in terms of “best of both worlds”.

I know some places are embracing fully remote, but it's just a shame more aren't.

Starting my counseling career on Tuesday and I’m scared to fail. What if I say something stupid and hurt my clients and make it worse?

Any thoughts from others new to the field or advice from more experienced practitioners?
