What Dr. Hope can say in an interview on
Gender Roles in the Old & New Workplace:

That group is what I characterize as the “mens”; it is decidedly not a typo. The mens, utilizing the definition in the Time article, are itching to get out of the “kid and home sphere” where it is clean, less sticky, where time means something (I have a meeting at 1 don’t bother me; 12:55 pm– “MOMMM, the cat threw up all over your desk!”—in this world of WFH time is fluid. Meetings are not so much scheduled as let’s put it down and I hope no one gets sick; we’ll hope for the best.

According to the recent Time magazine article, “Nobody Wants to Go Back to the Office As Much As White Men,” the men they are speaking about are the definition of boomer or near boomer age white men who enjoy a level of privilege in the corporate muckety-mucky. The last two-plus years of the men’s seeing the world of children (often still too often the domain of women and primary child caregivers).

Getting Employee to Return to the Office:

If there is one thing that the pandemic has taught us, it is that the digital age has finally caught up with the way we work, and there is no going back. It is important to remember that working remotely is not anything new. It existed for decades prior to the pandemic, so employees already knew it was possible to remain productive and engaged working remotely. All the pandemic did is to reveal to all those who were once doubtful and resistant to such a drastic change to the work environment, that in fact, it is an environment that is not only effective but also long overdue.

How to Retain Employees:

Last year, very shortly after companies began announcing their plans for their workers to return to the office, the Great Resignation began. And it’s not a coincidence. After almost two years of appreciating the benefits of working from home, especially during one of the most challenging times in our lifetime, people everywhere understood what it meant to value others and to be valued themselves. And when they realized they may have to return to face a workplace environment in which they didn’t feel valued by their companies, it impacted their decision to simply leave.
