Returning to the Office: What Are You Afraid Of?

Returning to the Office: What Are You Afraid Of?

As Omicron wanes and vaccination rates plateau, we seem to be entering an era of endemic COVID. More to the point, you should prepare for more public debate about returning to the office. During this Great Resignation, many employers are understandably hesitant precisely because their workers are reluctant to return—whether due to a preference for remote work or a fear of infection. After all, who can afford a mass exodus?


Remote Work May Not Be Working for You

But are employers and HR fearing the right things? To be clear, COVID is still concerning, and companies should still be cautious. Every organization is different, and you understand your particular workplace better than anyone. But the wave of resignations is already here for many organizations, and the story on the ground is much more complex than the public discourse suggests.

In the latest episode of HR Party of One—BerniePortal's popular podcast and YouTube Series—guest host Taylor Dennis covers some of the problems employers are facing in remote work models and some of the benefits of returning to the office. By the end, you’ll have a better understanding of the factors your organization needs to consider when deciding where to work and how.
