RTO coffee badging - would they know?

Recently read about “coffee badging”. If you are working in an office without any colleagues in the same office, would AIG know?

I understood as the upper echelon is completely ok with 'coffee badging' as long as you show up and swipe once, three to four times per week, you are free to come and go as you wish. There is no clear cut policy on how to approach RTW.

I just don’t see a point going into the office. There is no team that you’re part of and everyone works individually on an account. Occasionally, we work alongside with a team member on a rare occasion and get to meet the broker/insured in a meeting or lunch. I don’t understand this return to office. Me personally I’ve been much more productive at home than in the office. Something about the office environment and the lighting (sterile hospital grade) is psychologically demoting. Also working in a larger US city in downtown areas are unsafe, I’ve been using my car to get there vs. public transport. Additional expenses include parking, which we get validated sometimes.

Those who do it are at all levels. Management notices who is there and who is not. Newbies need to be in the office to learn from more experienced folks. But many of those are coffee badging. I just go in, do my job, and leave when I’m done. Stopped worrying about everyone else.

Our department are struggling to fill vacancies. Anything that goes live remains outstanding for months on end.

This approach to wfh / rto really isn't going to help.

Suspicion is that this is what they want and its all part of the winding down process.

Tired of people abusing the rules so likely we will be forced to badge IN and OUT soon. Too many people coming in and turning around and leaving to get their day counted as in office. Surprised they haven’t resorted to VPN monitoring but maybe with the new security measures they can’t capture the working hours on VPN

Essentially clocking in and clocking out.

We've pretty much gone back 30 years.

The rule will be you must badge in and badge out. You forget to badge out, it's on you. Will they be checking these reports, at first, yes. Not sure when this will start but, it's coming.

I wonder how effective this would be...if they can tell when you come in, they can tell when you leave. I would think that they can (and will) track how much time you are on-site. So, a quick coffee and making the rounds for face time and then dip might not work...or maybe I don't understand the concept fully.
