Over the past year, many of us have found things to love about working from home like flexibility
, the ability to focus
, and no commute. Now that offices are starting re-open, you might start to remember that there is a lot to love about the office, too: social interaction, the joys of collaboration, and of course, that endless pot of coffee. Many companies intend to give us the best of both worlds by allowing employees to split their time between home and the workplace.
