The losers: CEOs who wanted butts in seats 5 days a week.

A new survey from the Conference Board reveals that only 6 out of 158 U.S. CEOs plan to prioritize bringing workers back to the office full-time by 2024. This indicates a shift in the mindset of executives, who are increasingly accepting hybrid work arrangements as the norm for knowledge workers. Another survey by Deloitte found that 65% of CFOs expect their company to offer a hybrid work arrangement this year. Remote work is likely to be the most persistent economic legacy of the pandemic, with 20%-25% of U.S. workers currently working from home part of the week. Employees prefer flexibility and clear strategies behind office attendance policies. Even CEOs who advocate for office work have hybrid options in their own companies. The pandemic has given companies the experience of remote work and changed the way we work long-term.
