Is it about camaraderie, culture, and efficiency, or ego, control, and your reliance on habit versus strategy?
There are obvious exceptions, so don’t be dumb, but office environments do not need every employee physically present to be considered successful.
The boss or business owners who fear-monger the potential loss of camaraderie, culture, or efficiency are misinformed, ineffective, and have an unfortunate reliance on habit instead of strategy.
Their failure to recognize that their preferences are based on ego-driven kingdom building and control blind them to ample growth opportunities.
Try to keep up, fellas.
