    unpopular return-to-office mandates may be to blame. Human resources professionals should reconsider and advocate for flexible or fully remote work environments.

My employer is on a short, sharp rollercoaster with this.

Covid hit -> remote work encouraged -> general applause at the minimal disruption to BAU -> Covid "ended" -> 'get back in our expensive offices you ungrateful jackasses' -> financial crisis -> 'can people work remotely so we can sell buildings or escape leases? Please? Pleeeease?'
