How working from home changes home and work, and more

jx draw - 2022-02-28T090918.174.jpg

The lockdown came, you stayed home, and your work got done from there.

Now that return-to-work dates are being announced by major companies, the tide is flowing very much in the other direction. But many workers embraced the work-from-home environment and don't want to let it go completely.
