I know working from home is all the hype, and I also enjoy it myself on occasion. But I must agree with Mr. Iger on this. I acknowledge that this isn't relevant to all kinds of jobs, but it definitely is for mine. I feel some of my coworkers downplay the social importance and ease of collaboration it brings when being physically together at work, just because they feel more comfy at home.
"Nothing can replace the ability to connect, observe, and create with peers that comes from being physically together, nor the opportunity to grow professionally by learning from leaders and mentors, Mr Iger said in a memo to employees seen by the BBC.
"It is my belief that working together more in-person will benefit the company's creativity, culture, and our employees' careers," he added.
