In what seems like a lifetime ago, my employer made an educated guess many moons ago that we would see employees returning to workplaces starting in February of 2022. This guess was, of course, before the many variants began ravaging the world.
For those following along, February of 2022 is next month, just scant weeks away. It should come as no surprise that my employer is no longer expecting or allowing employees to return to workplaces in great numbers or even any numbers at all. In fact, they’ve gone backwards and sent home the small skeletons crews that were on-site previously.
In addition, they’ve announced they will be no longer giving out global “date of return”. The situation is just too fluid now to make grand predictions and should be we ever return to work, it will be done on a per jurisdiction basis.
It seems like I will be working from home for a long time to come.
