“We will see more and more workforce returning to the workplaces”, on post-pandemic work culture, Arundhati Bhattacharya said.
“Because what we are also seeing is that if you don’t get them to come to the office and connect, then it becomes more and more difficult to create the DNA of an organization,” she said.
She also said that some degree of hybrid work is important. However, she also added by saying that multi-generational families are living at home and space constraints make it a bit difficult for many people to work from home (WFH).
