Coronavirus Work-life

Rumors stirring that the lack of culture is going to force my region’s offices to force people to come back to the offices within the next 2-3 months. We are still at 30% capacity in the office. The division is obviously with people with smaller kids and school aged kids not being in the office unless their spouses can be home with them. Is anyone else seeing this at their regional firms? I already have had talks with leadership that I would go on a WFH permanent schedule if this happens

Let’s take a moment and be thankful we have the opportunity to work from home with our work needs/structure. Many people cannot have this luxury and it’s something we should all be blessed about.
