don’t know about you, but the results of a national survey I read about yesterday leave me more than a little perplexed. Even though pandemic related restrictions that have been in effect for 13 months are being eased or lifted in many places ,only a fraction of surveyed workers are returning to their office work places, choosing instead to continue to work from their homes, and seemingly happy to do so. The data tracking service Kastle Systems surveyed people in 10 large U.S. cities finding that 75 percent of office staffers are still working from home. Analysts do expect that more people will be returning to their offices in the coming months but many companies plan to keep their workers doing their jobs from home even after the pandemic is over. It may be more relaxing and more convenient to work from home rather than with others in an office, but the lack of socialization that results is something I’d find hard to deal with. It’s easy to understand why employers would want to keep their staffers doing their jobs from home. They save the expense of running large office buildings and don’t have to deal with inter-office conflicts. The concept of going some place else outside my home to do my job, even when I have to walk through rain, sleet and snow to get there, is too important to me to think I’d have any interest in doing my portion of our radio show in my slippers at home. That’s the way I see it.
