On the what the future of work will look like
As we get closer to returning to office, you’re starting to hear some companies say to all: “Everybody back.” Some companies [are] saying [everyone] can work from home. It’s going to be interesting. I think that we’re certainly seeing a future where we’ve learned that it’s okay to be remote and it’s quite acceptable to work remotely. When we all first started embracing this idea of working remotely, I can remember I was much younger and I had small children and you would always be very thoughtful about not letting anyone know that you’re – shh, keep your child quiet or keep your dog out of your office. Now, it’s like it doesn’t matter. People are sitting in meetings with their pets in their lap. Their kids are walking in. They’re putting on music, they’re dealing with their child, and they’re coming back to the meeting, which is actually what it ought to be. And so, we’re never going to go back from a version of that.
I think everybody’s pretty much aligned on the fact that it’s going to be hybrid. Most of our employees are going to work some number of days at home, some number of days in the office. There’s a percentage, some 20 percent that say they want to work from home every day. And there’s a very small percentage -- like less than 5 percent of our employees -- who actually say they want to be in the office every day, and everybody else falls in the middle.
