DALLAS (KDAF) — Work from home was said to become the ‘new normal’ at the height of the pandemic; however, one group of workers doesn’t want that to be the case.
Jackie Ducci is the CEO and founder of Ducci & Associates, a consultancy that provides career and job placement services to people in their twenties.
According to Ducci, recent graduates prefer in-person work over working from home.
One of the reasons for this is virtual burnout. After virtual learning and virtual graduations, recent graduates are tired of the work-from-home structure.
Another reason Ducci attributes is mental health. Being isolated can cause anxiety and increase depression. Working in an isolated environment denies workers opportunities for mentorship, a sense of community, networking and more.
