The much-hyped return to in-person work office in New York City has not gone as planned. Despite high COVID-19 vaccination rates among adults in New York City and cases currently decreasing, the emergence of the delta and omicron variants postponed some companies’ timelines for returning to the office. Plus, some workers and companies aren’t sure if they’re ready to go back – or if they ever will be. The New York City comptroller’s office found in a recent report as of late January that time spent in workplaces was down 29% from pre-pandemic levels, according to Google mobility data.
