The ability to work from home is just too much freedom for these corporations to allow their peasants. The ownership class isn't content without owning the employees, too.

It's plenty diverse here at home. One of my best cats is black.

I get my work done even faster when working from home. At least one of my coworkers is a lazy piece of shiat toad who consistently fails to complete his assigned work on time.

I want him farking terminated so badly.

Yep, sure, diversity is the reason. Not all that money (in particular) rich people have tied up in Commercial REITs. All those office buildings sitting empty... rotting away... fading into obscurity... rendered obsolete... a stone around the profit statement.

My remote team is by far the most diverse team I've ever been on.

Oh wait, they don't mean actual diversity. They just mean token diversity based on a checkbox or two on a form kept with HR.

Alas, my company is looking at Jamie Dimon and saying "He's right, you know." as they have all these team-building perks in ONE office out of our entire nationwide setup and keep telling us how great it is to be back in the office.

At this point it really doesn't matter what the C-suite assholes think, if they want to be an employer of certain kinds of talent, they're going to have to accept that nobody in those jobs wants to deal with coming into the office and have enough employment alternatives to demand it. Likewise, for the smart C-suite assholes, they're catching on that they can offload office costs to employees and dump their expensive buildings to pad their Yacht funds.

I can't decide which sentiment to laugh at hardest. So both, I guess. HA,HA!

You guys need to work on your social skills, that's all. They're kind of rusty.

Remote work absolutely increases diversity. The writer can choke on a fat cactus.

With the right Zoom filters, everyone can be diverse.

"Hollywood Squares"

It's also too Brady bunch. It's also beyond your comprehension. Yes Bob in accounting is pulling it to The Little Mermaid. Is he doing the job?

There's a weird idea in most work cultures that your employer owns your time. For a lot of jobs paying for time makes sense, but most office-based work can measure productivity another way. It really is a gross relationship, and the pandemic helped a lot of people understand that.

I'm absolutely worthless working from home, and I imagine research would show a lot of people are the same way. Particularly those with young children. But I like that it's more eco-friendly, and I'm naively hopeful that it will force employers to understand that they don't own their employees' time.

I'm at a conference, and last night I was at dinner with some people from various other companies. One said that he had been "encouraging" his team to go back to the office full time and was frustrated that it wasn't working - they were coming in when they needed to do lab work, and working from home when they would just be sitting at a computer - and was soon going to mandate they come back.

Two or three of us around the table were pretty much "Give them our names when they inevitably quit and we'll hire the good ones". He was like, what do you mean? He seemed genuinely astounded that there might be people that would quit over something he considered as simple as going back to the office. Yes, he was old and stodgy, why do you ask?

/my team does a lot of hardware and classified work so they can't work from home full time
//still encourage them to consolidate their non-office work into one or two days and work from home those days if they choose

If you hate your spouse, you go into the office.  Don't drag everyone down with you.

<work-from-home> "...doesn't work for idea generation."

I call BS on this one - I get some of my best ideas right as I wake up from my afternoon nap.
