What is it about remote working that some companies hate so much? If your employees can work from home just as well as they can from the office, why not let them? This company is about to have a lesson in valuing its’ employees autonomy, as the poster shared to r/Sysadmin.
If you have a job that you can do entirely from your laptop, it’s easy to work remotely. Basically all employees love it — you can easily get work done from the comfort of your own home. There are no coworkers to distract you, you can grab a snack from your fridge whenever you feel like it, and most importantly, you can lay in bed in your pajamas and your boss is none the wiser!
As the OP tells it, the workers at their company are not happy to hear that they’re suddenly expected to return to the office. I mean, why would they be? It implies that they aren’t working to their full potential at home, which just isn’t true for most workers. Workers are beginning to realize that they have a lot of power, and I hope the OP and their team manage to get through some tough negotiations about working remotely or in the office. I really hope they update us on the situation — I’m dying to know how many employees will go to another place of employment.
