      People who have never liked schmoozing with colleagues have found new heights of productivity away from meetings and office chitchat.

      My people.

      I negotiated Wed for working from home when I was in the corporate world, but the taste of that left me wanting more. Some people thrive in an office environment, I found it far too stimulating and distracting. Surely there's a middle ground win for all.

      There really should be a balance. Some weeks on-site and some weeks remote. Best of both worlds.

        Or day to day. One idea we've thrown around is having in office days for teams (staggered for now because of the pandemic), the rest of the days being optional. So if I am on two teams I might be in the office twice a week, but otherwise I would do what was most productive for me (and by default the company).

          That works well for everyone too. No need to make people go to the office if they're actually better off working from home.
