Who’s still working from home? The world was forever changed when COVID forced us all out of the office and into the home office. But every company, team and manager is different when it comes to ongoing work-from-home policy.
For today’s show, I invited Juan Alvarado back on the podcast to discuss what’s really driving the decisions around working from home. We get into all the details about how work from home is working, the considerations of managers and employees, and much more.
In this episode, we break down…
What Juan has seen in the day and age of “return to the office, or not?”

The root causes behind the “quiet quitting” trend
How to truly get to know your staff and team members
