"2. Remote work makes employees happier
For many of us, the past couple of years has been the first chance to work remotely–and the effects are astounding. According to research by Owl Labs and Global Workplace Analytics, 74% of employees feel happier when they work remotely. The reasons vary from not having to commute to having more flexibility and spending more time with their families.  In fact, the same research states that 50% of surveyed employees would gladly take a pay cut just to have the option of continuing to work remotely. So if you’re asking your employees to return to the office now that the pandemic is on its way out, maybe it’s time to reconsider this mandate."
