I don't think our culture is ever going to change from the expectation of having people in the office because we have students who pay a lot of money to be here. It's like going to a restaurant and expecting no maitre d' and no waiters and waitresses. If you have to go back in the kitchen and get it yourself, are you going to pay a premium for that? Or are you just going to go to McDonald's or In-N-Out instead? There's a level of service that comes along with paying that much for tuition.

The head of J.P. Morgan is insisting that people return to the office but guess what? There are a lot of people returning to the office, but it's going to be a specific type of person returning to the office. And what you'll do is alienate the next wave of entry-level, frontline managers that want to develop. You're going to see that take place.

The future of work will have hybrid and remote working as core pillars! It opens the door for getting diverse talent and employee retention. We as a growth company are seeing a lot of potential in this strategy.

If a company doesn't have a remote work option by now, they won't before Q1 '22.  I've seen some companies that had remote work options over the last 18 months start to constrict those options.  It's hard for me to imagine a situation where a company would NOW implement remote work if they didn't do so over the last 18 months.

There was industrial revolution followed by Digital and now Hybrid. And its purely because of Global pandemic in past it was electivity and Internet.  

a recent study of C folks shows that  
1 hybrid workforce is here to stay in future
2 employees thrive when given responsibility ( 40%) higher employee productivity. (freedom of where  when   who  what how much)
3 create opportunity to collaborate for a exponential growth speed (relay effect)
4 in hybrid employee looks beyond roles
5 opportunity to reinforce workforce culture - adopt gig / future of work 
6 aims at equality of opportunity and more safe
7 step towards building resilient organization and make ready for future changes 

net-net its advantageous for any enterprise.

If they haven’t done it already in relation to the pandemic, I don’t know that they will. Some industries can’t afford to while others may have cultural issues that inhibit the ability. I will say that supporting remote work is a mixed bag and that you have to work through the challenges to make it work for everyone.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
