This week, we look at whether employees and their bosses see eye-to-eye on the future of the office. Plus, two experienced venture capitalists on the start-up investing landscape, and the future of space tourism

Back in the groove? Having seen the solid productivity gains among their employees during the pandemic, many organizations are planning a hybrid virtual model that combines remote work with time in the office. McKinsey recently surveyed both employees and executives about the future of the hybrid model to get their views about what can—and should—happen.
Not so fast. Many of the employees we surveyed feel they haven’t heard enough about their employers’ plans for post-COVID-19 working arrangements. Organizations may have announced a general intent to embrace hybrid virtual work, but too few of them, employees say, have shared detailed guidelines, policies, or expectations. That lack of transparency is leaving employees anxious. They want organizations to emphasize flexibility, well-being, and competitive compensation once the pandemic is over.
Not so slow. More than a quarter of employees we surveyed said they would consider switching employers if their organization returned to fully on-site work. In our employer survey, the majority of executives expect that employees will be on-site between 20 and 80 percent of the time (for roles that aren’t essential to perform on-site), or one to four days per week. Is that enough common ground?
