Working from home, will it last

What a crazy year its been… do you think working from home will last?

My employer looks like they’re going to be doing it long term though I’m currently going in the office a few times a week to deal with IT hardware issues, I do seem to get more work done at home though!

I think a lot of it will depend on how long the virus restrictions last, the longer we spend doing it the more people will get used to it and potentially enjoy it - I know not everyone does though so I can see in the future perhaps offices will shrink and become ‘hubs’ for some people to work from and others to maybe pop in for meetings and such things.

A lot will also depend on the business, only clerical or computer type jobs really work, I don’t imagine many welders or carpenters will be working from home unless they just manufacturer and sell small pieces.

A lot will also depend on broadband speeds - I am fortunate to have a very good connection but I know many people that have very poor connectivity where they are.

I hope it continues as I really do not miss going in the office at all
