I have two work stations, one seated and one standing (my kitchen bar). Alternate throughout the day - particularly helpful when I’m getting sleepy to stand up and move a bit

I went back to the office this month (3/4 days per week) and it’s been a positive experience. Plus it seems that some partners who are going in appreciated it. But the office is a 15 min drive away for me. Some people need to commute an hour plus to be there. Will they be at a disadvantage if they actually try to take advantage of hybrid WFH in the future?
