After nearly two years of working remotely, advertising agency Fitzco finally returned to the office. Things almost seemed normal. But on the agency’s first day back to in-person work, an employee tested positive for Covid-19.
In the third episode of The Return, senior marketing reporter and host Kimeko McCoy talks with Fitzco staff about what a positive case means for return to office plans. Meanwhile, future of work experts weigh in on the new push for workplace protections amidst the pandemic and what it’ll take to get employers and employees on the same page in returning to in-person work.
