Safe to say that anyone who works in an office environment hasn’t, for a second, wondered when we’re going to get the call to go back to the office.
Productivity Of Remote Workers Could Determine The Fate Of The Office Market
Are we reopening next week? Next month? This summer?
I’m not anxious about it at all. I’m at my best in this current Working from Home environment. Hands down. I’ve never been happier with my working conditions than I am right now.
Maybe that’s partially because, working construction, I’m used to working in a field office. Those of us in construction work in an environment of autonomy. We don’t have much connection with the home office, other that turning in time sheets & expenses and talking to HR once in a while. Our jobs are focused on what’s in front of us on-site.
And I’m fine with that. I’ve always been fine with that.
I don’t want to sit in an office wondering who sneezed. I don’t want to spend my day with a mask on. In a cube with Plexiglas. I don’t want to have to fret all day about whether I forgot to use a Clorox wipe on the copy machine that I just used, or can I use the microwave anymore.
Not for me. I’m kicking it in my home HQ better than ever. My commute to and from work is a dream come true.
Yes, work is omni-present. As long as my laptop is open, there’s something that I could be doing. Shutting off has been the thing I’ve needed to force myself to do. 8 hours always turns in to 9 or 9-1/2 or 10. And that’s OK. I’d rather donate my time to the effort than waste it staring at a windshield.
What will happen? No idea. I’m fine where I’m at. Fingers crossed….
