While some companies have announced they will continue to operate remotely , others plan to take a hybrid approach , allowing employees to work from home some days and in the office the rest.
But there are some companies that want things to go back to the way they were, with all their employees back in the office.
But the company's corporate office workers have been working from home for more than a year now.
The plan now is to have office employees back on a 50% rotational schedule by July 1 and then all employees back in the office 100% of the time by October 1.
Some employees have already been working in the office.
The change to bring people back into the office is going to be a big effort."
"For those that were hired full-time to be in the office, that is our expectation come October, safely, of course," he said.
To help with the transition, employees will initially be called back in teams to work two days a week in the office at first.
For instance, finance and account services might come into the office on Mondays and Wednesdays and marketing and data services on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
In the UK, business connectivity provider Convergence Group plans to have some workers back in the office full-time.
The company has a 24/7 call center and working remotely made it harder to resolve problems at the same pace as when teams were in office.
Some employees, including those in accounting department and office management, come in every day.
