We've been told to RTO as have all the teams around us. I have always worked from home over the past 15 years. During COVID it worked for a while but then we kept hiring and hiring timid students and people who were attracted to working from bed.
It became a joke. Juniors send memes around about using text is better than phoning people. No initiative to do the work they are given and no one to help them. Because there is no one around them to learn from and their manager is missing and equally as unskilled they just go quiet.
So we have to hand hold them or do their work for them to keep others supported. It effects the pay of our team and we work twice as much to carry the wrong hires straight from college.
They are now feeling harmed because they have to RTO? It needs to happen
I will hate working from the office but this isnt about me. That will stabilise very fast as the work is what matters.
