Work from home is the new normal as employers struggle to make the daily grind work


For many office workers, it’s back to the grind. But it’s not exactly back to the office. And it probably won’t be.

We’re coming up on two years since COVID-19 forced a work-from-home revolution as governments asked people to stay away from public spaces to slow the spread of the disease.

Even when outbreaks waned – and in states and territories that have barely required restrictions and lockdowns – workers have largely declined to return to office desks full-time.

Companies may want to force their workforce back into a 2019 straight-jacket model of 9-to-5, Monday to Friday, at the desk.

But with extreme labour pressure on employers – making it essentially a seller’s market for people interested in a new job – it’s not going to happen.

Welcome to #WFH forever. Kind of.
