Starting to see something of a hard pivot domestically on this

I think there's going to be an expectation in many workplaces of something of an in-person presence - likely in a form that permits corporations to achieve the sort of cost-savings from shrinking their footprints that they've been salivating over through desk/office hotelling and such. Without the constraints provided by lockdowns and public fear about the virus, there's going to be more abuse and, ultimately, a noticeable decline in employee productivity. Many companies are viewing this as an opportunity to restructure the workplace, not scuttle it entirely.
Given the multinational footprints of many corporations, however, I think the momentum will build over time rather than, say, this month. Vaccinations, government restrictions, cases and deaths in many countries are still at a point where these kinds of decisions can be viewed as insensitive and/or premature. Corporate risk managers are still reluctant to green-light offices returning to full capacity with minimally intrusive restrictions..
