Absolutely no.

1) where the best apprenticeship happens, 2) huge part of the value prop to attract best talent, 3) core part of our working model

Nope. I mean it’s probably going to be less travel for the foreseeable future

Who the hell knows? There are some in the public health community calling for a permanent new normal of only WFH even post-vaccine (vaccine only likely to protect against symptoms not stop the spread, and won’t work for everyone, so Covid will be a perpetual public health issue). So we have to get over that barrier first before we even talk about work travel.

But, my gut says travel will be reduced a bit but not eliminated if we do get over that barrier.

Hm that’s interesting. I’d think that they’d want staff to be able efficiently do grunt work with real-time feedback and be sufficiently prepared to interact with clients in-person as they move up on the ladder

How could a firm justify asking for higher bill rates because the consultants aren’t traveling? I believe the bill rates would go down if all work is remotely done by consultants.

No definitely not.
