Just how permanent is the shift to remote work?
There have been many opinions expressed about the viability of long-term remote work. Twitter and Reddit have fully embraced a remote model for employees who aren’t required to do their jobs in-person (such as server maintenance). Other companies such as Microsoft are floating a hybrid model, where employees might come into the office a couple times a week for meetings.
Other leaders, like Netflix’s Reed Hastings, have said that remote work has been mostly a negative experience for employees, leading to a loss of creativity, productivity and workplace culture.
But what do employees really want? And what should companies do to stay competitive for top talent?
