I am of the opinion that if the work gets done well and on time, the location it happens in doesn't matter. It's on leadership to hire and manage in a way that promotes team work and offers employees the independence to work where and how it best fits them.

Yes - we had more remote workforce in our long range plans pre covid but very few remote employees at that time. Now that everyone is remote we have determined that the majority don’t wish to return full time and will be working to embrace that in our return plans. However, I think part of why remote work is working so well right now is because everyone is remote. When some are on site there are issues of remote team members feeling left out of hallway convos etc so it will be interesting to see how people’s wishes evolve.

My wife is starting a full time job after 2 years. I’ve been paying all the expenses since we’ve been married. We each have our own separate accounts and a joint account. Her salary will be around $50-$75k. We agreed she needs to contribute to the expenses and I was thinking that starting off paying half the rent would be reasonable ($1,500). Maybe put that amount per month into the joint account and then she can do what she wants with the rest? Reasonable? How do others handle expenses?
