Postponing a Return to Office Gets Companies Nowhere


The pandemic has its own timetable. The recent rise in cases was largely unexpected, and already seems to be reversing in both the hard-hit South and the less-severely-affected white-collar work-from-home hotbeds of New York, San Francisco and Seattle.
