How this plays out with my employer should be interesting.

Their current main office space, hundreds of people, was subleased and getting their own lease is going to cost a shyte-load more. On the other hand, they own another build (where I used to dwell).

They were clearly looking to save on rent - hence my being told to work-from-home as they gave away my office occurred just before COVID expanded that to universal, employees only now coming in. Many still work remotely. The less space they need, they realized even then, the less it will cost.

My hunch?   Their aversion to people working totally remotely has been mitigated. Staffing has seen some serious cuts, especially last year, and the aversion has been replaced with accepting that some of us down need to be stared out so we look busy. Since all regular employees have virtual desktops, when you need to come in you can just sit somewhere and work.

so, it's a matter of managers at all levels finding some comfort level vs. costs. Some of us serve no useful purpose in the build that we cannot serve outside of it.

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
