As states and companies plan for the end of shelter-in-place orders, Crain's Detroit Business spoke with Sigred Solutions
Should I make my office workforce that's currently working from home return?
Probably not, said Kristi Stepp, partner at Ann Arbor-based management recruiting and advisory firm Sigred Solutions.
"Beyond the logistics, people are enjoying more flexibility working from home and likely want that to continue. If they've made it work, try to let them. Remember there are generational differences as well. This probably played into the millennial comfort zone, but baby boomers were probably more challenged and not feeling as productive and as engaged. Remember those may want to come back to work sooner than others."
