I worked from home on Mondays/Fridays before all of this but much more prefer working in the office. Curious to see how this changes our dynamic. Main office is in DC with about 20 employees, my office is in Virginia with 5 employees, and the other half of the company is spread across the globe.
With business at an all-time high and things running so smoothly with everyone at home, I imagine the five of us in my office go remote with our office lease running up in a few months.

100% before and 100% after.
Even above, 83% of my industry can easily work from home, I'm WAY more productive here in a fraction of the time. I limit to a couple clients intentionally, but I could take on quite a few if I was willing to work full time doing this. We just don't really NEED the money, and being around for 3 kids under 12 is saving us a ton already.

For me, getting back 4 hours a day of my life, not to mention not getting up at 5am, changes my perspective on working from home.
I never wanted to be a work from home person but I have a dedicated office in my house and the time (and money) saved from commuting is enormous.
Yeah, my wife can't really work from home, being a school administrator (once they are back to normal), but the time she loses commuting there and back in the evening, not to mention late meetings PTA and junk like that are the real impacts to our family. I can deal with the during the school day period easy, but there's only one of me, and when one kid has to be at this place for Volleyball practice for 2 hours, and then this one has to be at soccer practice 20 miles away at the same time it's impossible. Not to mention the little one will be old enough to have her own schedule here pretty soon.
I can't bring myself to hire a nanny just to help ferry to sports and back, but we are almost at that point, and it's that commute that causes it. If she left at 430 and home by 5 we could swing it. When she doesn't make it home til 6-630 it doesn't work.
