I take days at home on occasion to bang out written work product, prepare for something, etc. And, during covid when we were shut down physically for awhile we made it work. And to never physically be present might work for some mega firm that churns and burns associates, who plan on the majority of associates moving on after a few years. But for smaller firms which actually anticipate their associates becoming partners someday, it is suboptimal, at best.Respectfully, this is the point exactly. What the old world order sees as "missing out on a lot by not coming" the new world order sees as "gaining alot by not coming in." They do the work, help the company advance, etc more efficiently but shed the unnecessary elements of office small talk, gossip, hobnobbing, three bosses strolling to their cube asking for the same thing, etc. People want to maximize time on personal relationships with people they choose to be with, not people they're forced to sit by in the office.
