This is interesting, but I’m a little confused on the lack of analysis around the on-going pandemic as an OHS issue. We can talk about productivity in-office vs at home, but when people are catching covid at the office that’s going to have some knock-on effects. The statistics around short-term post-infection brain fog are not insignificant, and there’s estimates that up to 4-5% of people may suffer from severe long-covid. All of the analysis that you and others have presented is RTO/WFH as a culture issue, effectively, but there’s a giant hippopotamus lurking in the water that for some reason no one is discussing?

I think this is an incredibly poor take, which is surprising. Every other sector has not “done it”, unless by done it, you mean given up on public health mitigation, and protecting their workers. The mask mandates in the fed buildings are meaningless because they’re not enforced, and allow for poor quality masks that don’t prevent transmission, and social distancing is totally pointless with aerosol transmission.

Seriously baffling.

You have a typo under 3 options, old school says 100% work from home, not 100% in office, or 0% work from home, which I believe was the intention.

Thanks for the post! Insightful as always.
