I like working in an office.
I actually rented an office, a.k.a. pay good money every month, so I can sit in an office.
It looks professional towards customers, I'm among people, which actually gained me a good customer, and I can concentrate better when there's no TV and PlayStation around.

If I were still an employee, I'd want to be able to work from home.
I probably still wouldn't (unless the office was far away), but it says something about an employer if they let you work from home.
I even read about a recruiter recently who just watched companies who announced people had to come back to the office and then simply called their employees.
More than half of the employees were happy to switch jobs.

Basically, if my employer doesn't go the extra mile for me, I won't go the extra mile for them.
It's a two-way street and "just" salary doesn't cut it anymore (unless it's really good).
That's also how I want to lead my company when I get employees (which isn't easy in the current market).
Work from home is a no-brainer, as are 25 paid vacation days (20 is the legal minimum), a car, phone and laptop (these are a bare minimum nowadays).
Anything else can be discussed, such as study, working part time, flexible working hours, etc.
A happy employee is a good employee (usually) and they're every companies greatest "asset" and for some reason many companies forget this.
