More companies are asking workers to return to the office — for at least a few days a week — after Labour Day, citing better communication, increased productivity and a stronger company culture for the shift. But workers aren’t convinced.
After years of working from home, employees are pushing back because they say that the option to work remotely affords them a better quality of life.

“And once employees have had an opportunity [to] work from home, they’re going to continue to expect to be allowed to do that in the future.”
