If William Shakespeare were writing Hamlet today, he might alter that work’s most famous line as follows: “To bringeth employees back to the office, or let them worketh remote.

Joanne Lipman, a member of the Yale Daily News board of directors and bestselling author, has written in this month’s Time magazine about how workplaces might need to change post-shutdown. She joined us on All Thing Considered to talk about which side will get its way: business owners and CEOs who want workers back in the office, or employees who feel the opposite.
