Corona has also had an impact on them. The fact that their colleagues work from home also affects them. And they too will experience that hybrid works change their own, non-hybrid work. In this respect, Mullenweg’s pyramid of autonomy (unconsciously) shows that gap very clearly. He talks about five levels, but actually dismisses the ‘level 0’ as irrelevant.
