Returning to the office

There are two ways to read that title, each way will change the emphasis on how you think about the statement. Did you read it as “returning to the office”, or was it “returning to the office“?

If the former .. “returning to the office” … have the conversations with management started, about a return to the office after +12 months working remotely? The emphasis here is on the return, in the same way people talk about the ‘new normal’ is something like the ‘old’ normal. Is this a permanent return, a phased return, or even no return on the horizon? is this really a ‘Return’, or a token gesture ‘return’ to the space(s) you’ve used before? Has your organisation made the role, or you, permanently remote? Is the return something you have control or agency over as part of the conversation, or has it been ‘done to you’, so to speak? Would you choose something different than what has been offered or instructed – would this be more or less time in the office?
