One more thing about the WFH environment. It has spawned massive quitting of jobs, so much so that it even has a name -- The Great Resignation. Do an internet search and you'll find all kinds of information about it.
It seems extended time at home got folks to rethinking a lot of things, including their careers.
Some members of two-earner households decided they could get by on one income.
Others decided life is too short to work for a toxic, narcissistic manager.
Still others concluded, as I have mentioned previously, WFH is a good fit, and when their employer said, "Come back to the office," they said, "I don't think so," gave notice and found a job in which WFH is acceptable.
It's fascinating stuff, and yet another example of how the pandemic has turned things upside down.
Employers are in a dilemma, of course, as workers are quitting in droves. Companies are finding new ways to entice employees and I suspect some, who are harping on the "come back to the office" message, might have to back off a bit if they want to retain good employees.
I don't ever remember it being like this, where workers have these kinds of choices.
As for me, I'm hoping to ride my current train to retirement, WFH or not, although it's what I'm doing now and it looks as if it will last a while.
I'm not ready to hang it up just yet.
