Re: IND Second system

work from home ain't good for society

Maybe, but people will find other ways to socialize that don't involve work.

plus most people can't be trusted to perform efficiently when alone

I find this very difficult to believe in any working environment, especially white-collar. If most of your employees fail to meet expectations, either you hired wrong, trained wrong, or have unrealistic expectations.

bosses like to see the workers work at work.

I can't imagine what it's like to be a person with such an obsessive need for control that they constantly peer over their employees' shoulders. It sounds miserable. Any manager like that should not find themselves surprised when employees quit.

To use my job as an example: my time is tracked only so that a number of hours can be billed to clients. Nobody cares when I do any of my work as long as I hit deadlines and don't miss meetings. Nothing has changed much for us in the past two years, and every department has now proven that their job can be done without mandatory office attendance 5 days a week, to the point where the company abandoned plans to require everyone back. I do go in occasionally when it's more convenient or for a change of scenery, but that's on my own preference.
