After the government relaxed lockdown restrictions, several companies have been using ‘tactics’ to lure employees to work from the office. But not everyone was in favour of it. Some even resigned when told to work from the office.
Harsh Goenka, Chairman of RPG Group, also thinks employees should go back to the office as WFH is no longer a “viable option”. Despite being schooled by those who oppose his thoughts, he again tried to politely push his opinions and stated the reason why people should work from an office with the help of a pie chart.

The diagram depicting ‘working from home’ shows working as the only thing that employees do at home. However, in the latter half of it which represents ‘working in the office’, people spend a considerable amount of time doing other things and have distractions like helping others do their work, sitting in traffic, and getting lunch and coffee.
His creative idea got people talking online. A majority of people opposed his ‘work from office’ notions and stated its disadvantages too.
Work from Office -culture should be resumed for better team work in the Organization and for better mental, physical & social health of individual employees. https://t.co/O54Nu9YsP0

well, you are missing one important element in working from office. Which is help building the company culture and core values which are more inculcated while being in person. Bonding with employer beyond salary, title etc is what comes when you are in person.

Disadvantages to creating a mandatory work from office model:
1. Spending money on fuel (50% more expense per month compared to pre-covid)
2. Hours lost stuck in traffic.
3. Forced to listen to office gossip even when wearing headphones.
4. HR floor activities – oh the horror

Stop spreading total nonsense😡
Your coffee will also be available in your home.
You can help your family in their work.
You save a lot of time.
You get homemade food(biggest advantage).
And last but not least, you save a hell lot of money.

There are a number of reasons why someone might want to work from home. Perhaps they have young children and need to be able to care for them while also working.

1. Getting handmade tea/coffee is better than machine’s one.
2. WFH allows you to eat with your loved one’s each day without any hurry.
3. Time saved in commuting can be utilized in personal growth.
4. As I’m in IT, we do help our colleagues if someone is stuck promptly.

– after weeklong stay at home weekend getaway toh banta hai
– afternoon nap post meal is the greatest thing on earth
– dozing off during Zoom call is easier than in office conference room
– No cctv at home to monitor your actions every second … important is delivery of project

This is good for clicks but even when I’m working from home, I do everything that I used to do while working from office except siting/spending time in traffic. Plus some household work. https://t.co/xwIgZqJ55o
