NPR recently interviewed Constance Hadley, Lecturer in Management & Organizations, discussing the growing number of companies requiring their employees to return to the office.
Millions of people have benefited from remote working in recent years – giving them more time for family, more control over their schedules, and a better work-life balance. Today, a growing number of companies, including tech giants like Google and Meta, are requiring their employees back to work, citing concerns about productivity, innovation, and engagement.
When does it make sense to bring back workers, and when is it more effective to work remotely? Digital nomads are reshaping how work looks – and where they live, and office design is attracting people back to the office, say workplace psychologists.
