in #CASE you missed it… What Folks Miss Most About Their Workplace

More than two-thirds of workers say they have missed their workplace since being forced to work from home due to the pandemic

It’s been almost eight months since a lot of people stepped foot inside their office, and while folks may enjoy working remotely in their pajamas each day, it seems a lot of folks are missing their workplace.

A new British poll, which could easily translate here, finds:

More than two-thirds of workers say they have missed their workplace since being forced to work from home due to the pandemic.

65% say working remotely has made them appreciate the social side of being in an office.

Among the top things people miss about the office:

Being face to face with people

The office banter

Simply asking someone a question out loud rather than messaging

Working in a team

Your office desk

Hearing office gossip

Your office chair

Catching up about people's weekends

The printer

Lunch break walks with colleagues

Folks are missing the office so much that 24% actually regret complaining about their workplace before lockdown.

As for whether they’re ready to go back

46% say they are, but only “gradually.”

17% are ready to go back full time.

14% are excited to return to the office.

38% are apprehensive about going back.

And overall, workers think it will take about three weeks to get back into a routine once they return to the office.
