    big company is on the hook for an expensive lease for a corporate building and has to justify to themselves that it's totally worth it by doing return to office

      On top of that, big commercial real estate companies and urban politicians are applying pressure on big company big wigs to renew all those leases when they do expire. Said groups are spreading lots of FUD about WFH quality.

      this and many companies are still of the boomer mentality of "you can't be productive without being in the same room"

      I think it’s less about the real estate and more that exec types get meaning and fulfilment out of their work. Seeing an office full of people they lead, taps into some status reward function in their brain. Most of the work execs do is going to meetings and making decisions which is way better to do in person.

    It's 2:11 PM and I've already started drinking because I have no more meetings on my calendar. There's a database migration that I've already done all the code for but I'm too lazy to get it into QA and write the testing notes. It's been done for a month and a half. It'll save the company over a thousand a month. My juniors have no work because I'm too lazy to write up the tickets. Three day weekend, might as well start it at 2:11 PM on a Thursday. Not like I do anything on Fridays.

    Sorry bro, just ruining it for everyone.

    Because the economy and infrastructure of every city in the world functions under the assumption that people will be commuting, and eliminating that assumption practically overnight could have disastrous results. Fewer people commuting means fewer convenience-based stores like gas stations and fast food, fewer stores mean fewer jobs, fewer jobs means fewer residents, fewer residents mean fewer prospective workers and clients for local businesses, less local business and less taxable income means worse infrastructure, and a viscious cycle begins from there.

    Everyone loves short term pain for long term gains until it starts personally affecting them and election season rolls around with a new candidate promising immediate relief.

      nah, that is not the traditional way, traditionally we worked near our houses or even in the same building and is still that way in a big part of the world. Working more than half an hour away from your house, traditionally walking, is a modern idea.

      mostly this
      but also women miss the office because they basically view work as a way to socialize and miss that.

    harder for a beancounter to count beans if they are all scattered around. that's why WFH now comes with malware to track your eyes and brainwaves to make sure you aren't thinking about anything else on company time
    also since it saves money on offices and supplies it reduces the tax deductions. if you have an office party you can probably (very carefully) claim a lot of it on tax, meaning you get to have fun and pay less to the government. can't do that if theres noone in the office

    It removes the need for several layers of middle management and corporate bureaucracy, so those middle managers and bureaucrats and the upper managers that own that fief advocate against it.

    It's because firms that own a shit ton of real estate also invest in companies. If nobody needs to rent their offices then they are in big shit, so they start making noise and as shareholders they can be quite persuasive.

    If you don't have wagies in an office then middle management no longer has a reason to exist and middle management cannot have that.

    Companies need to own you like a slave or they don't feel like they can count on you. Plenty of normalgays are willing to give up their freedom to make a buck, which lets them continue getting away with it.
