Employees Are Quitting Instead of Giving Up Working From Home
A six-minute meeting drove Portia Twidt to quit her job.

She’d taken the position as a research compliance specialist in February, enticed by promises of remote work. Then came the prodding to go into the office. Meeting invites piled up.

The final straw came a few weeks ago: the request for an in-person gathering, scheduled for all of 360 seconds. Twidt got dressed, dropped her two kids at daycare, drove to the office, had the brief chat and decided she was done...

RSK: Here is why many employees want more flexible work between office and home. Commuting being the highest priority. I assume when the unemployment benefits end this too will diminish somewhat. Of course, it is all on supply and demand of employees available, needing to and willing to work....that pool seems small at the moment.
