Woman Forced To Go Into The Office To 'Collaborate' With Coworkers Realizes She's The Only One Not Working From Home
Briefly

The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed our perspective on work and the working environment. As the number of employees working from home tripled during the pandemic, remote work has become a new way of life. While employees enjoy the flexibility and better work-life balance, employers are eager to bring their employees back to the office, with over 68% of companies implementing 'back to office' mandates between 2022 and 2023.
Those with full-time jobs are still getting their bearings after several years of unexpected changes, and the reality is that working environments have been inherently and irreparably altered.
One employee shared her experience of being the only one required to return to the office while the rest of her team continued to work from home. She found that the collaboration she was supposed to have in the office was not possible because there was no one else physically present. This highlights the questionable nature of these 'back to office' mandates and whether they truly create a healthier and more productive work atmosphere.
"I'm here at the office, you know, 'cause they want us to collaborate. But there's no one here for me to collaborate with."
