In an American Lawyer article authored by Patrick Smith, Jessica Cox, a Senior Executive Search Associate at Calibrate, provides commentary on firms’ approaches to remote work and how their flexibility for the summer months leaves room to question why the period can’t be extended.

“If they can effectively do their jobs remotely for the past several years, and now for the month of August, what is the argument for being in the office long term? That’s the question on people’s minds when firms take this approach or have strict in-office expectations generally.’”

The article goes on to discuss several firms’ statements on remote and hybrid work as well as plans to move back into the office, theorizing what factors will be most determinate in that decision.
