We've been in full re-open mode here in Massachusetts for more than a week now. Employers whose workers went home for the pandemic are figuring out how, and how much, to come back to work in-person.
This, after a lot of companies signaled remote work was working — for productivity and for employees. Which puts us at a tense moment: will employers choose a new, more hybrid path, or will the desire to return to normal pull everyone back into the office full-time?
We take listener calls and discuss with Ellen Ruppel Shell, author of "The Job: Work and Its Future in a Time of Radical Change" and Kim Merriman, professor of management at the Manning School of Business at UMass Lowell.
