        It will be very interesting to see how employees react to return to the office when the rest of the world will be working remotely, in fact finding a remote job at this time is easier than in the office, so wondering how these decisions and speeches will affect the employee retention rate of these types of companies.

        You personally could become a hater of remote work, but that does not mean that you close the door to each and every member of your cooperation, sounds very selfish and definitely resistant to the evolution.
