I have gotten used to working from home. In fact, I'm at the point where I can't even imagine having to waste nearly two hours of my life each day driving to work and back. Working from home has not affected my productivity, on the contrary. Having more time to spend on the things I enjoy has made me a better employee. If they ask me to return to the office full time, I'm ready to quit. There are plenty of fully remote options available these days to settle for something that would make me profoundly unhappy.

I already noticed that im not able to do as much work on days i go to the office since a considerable part of my morning and afternoon is now for commuting. And im not going to make up for it when i get home during my personal time.
As long as the SVP is fine and isn't at increased risk of covid during the pandemic, that is all that matters. Everyone else can risk their health and their families health.
How ridiculous and out of touch is this SVP.
I predict higher workloads due to higher covid rates within support teams and then eventually lower job satisfaction, engagement, trust in management and then higher turnover.
Meanwhile the svp works permanently from home in WV or her NC beach house.
The support organization were told to go back to the office next week. I wonder if other teams will eventually need to return to the workplace.
I second this. No way I will be returning to the office and waste time and money commuting. No shortage of remote job offers and this is only growing!
