Working At Home vs. In Person
It may seem strange, but I was really happy to go into the office this week. Don't get me wrong - there are advantages to working from home, such as cooking lunch from scratch or avoiding rush-hour traffic. But I have missed looking my coworkers in the eye and exchanging ideas and pleasantries in person. Those exchanges form a stronger bond with the people and the place. This is especially true at Intel since we have an environment that is more like family than just a place to work. We genuinely enjoy each other's company! I'm looking forward to the day when COVID-19 is under control. I miss those all-important interpersonal connections, and I miss seeing the smiles of my coworkers!
