Joe Patti beat me to the punch with his blog post yesterday that references an article by Rani Molla in the 3/23/21 edition of vox.com that reports on some research from various academic and corporate sources.
What really jumps out at me are the way data is used to confirm or refute assumptions, such as younger age groups would be more inclined to want to continue working from home thanks to the misconception that anything tech related will be more appealing to younger generations.
Young people felt they were missing out on the mentorship and soft skills they would have received working alongside older colleagues in the office, who can help them advance their careers.
Bother personally and professionally, I’m thrilled to see the arts and culture sector get thrown into the deep end of remote working, even if everyone wishes we took a different path getting there.
With vaccine’s rolling out and orchestras spending time thinking about coming together, I hope everyone takes a moment to read Molla’s article.
