It's funny how so many of us dreamed of being able to work from home and then when we were forced to do it, it lost a bit of its spark. Sure in the beginning it's great being able to work in your pajamas and throw in a load of laundry between zoom calls but after awhile you realize there are things you miss about being at your workplace. According to an article at swnsdigital.com, a study of 2,000 office workers was done and they found that two-thirds of workers say they missed working at their office and 65% said working remotely has made them appreciate the social side of being at the office.
Here are some of the top things people miss about the office:
- Being face to face with people
- The office banter
- Simply asking someone a question out loud rather than messaging
- Working in a team
- Your office desk
- Hearing office gossip
- Your office chair
- Catching up about people's weekends
- The printer
- Lunch break walks with colleagues
