Dragged back in (kicking and screaming) for two days a week. Two hour commute each way - oh joy.
General consensus amongst my co-workers is the same as me - why?
My job includes analysing metrics on work throughput and they clearly show that more work was completed during home working than during the traditional(?) office based working.
Management disagree with the numbers, which they originally requested (to keep an eye on staff during the lockdown?)...
So, it seems to be a case of "tell me what I want to hear, not what I need to hear".
