Is Hybrid work the worst of both worlds?

Hybrid work may seem like a meeting point between the two extremes of remote work and regular office hours, but it is proving to be counterintuitive for many. Contrary to the expression of ‘best of both worlds, it is evoking a feeling of dismay among employees after two long years of remote work due to the pandemic. But with the infection rates seemingly under control, many companies are insisting that employees report to the office at least for some days in the week.

For many, it is costing them the healthy workday routine that they had developed over the last two years during their remote work tenure. An account of a media company assistant featured in the Washington Post states how a Pennsylvania-based woman has to restrict her walking, cooking, and other leisurely activities only for weekends without adding any value to her work. This is simply because for three days of the week she has to spend an hour driving to the office which leaves her fatigued.
