Return-to-office mandates have come with costs for workers — and turnover threats

Many workers who have been required to return to the office say the return carriers a hefty price tag when compared to working from home, and some say they resent their employers for creating that expense.


That’s according to a survey by leadership coaching firm BetterUp of 1,441 workers, which found employees who were mandated to return to the office are spending on average $561.06 per month on work-related expenses, such as transportation costs and additional child care expenses, among others.

The survey also found workers were willing to take a 13.2% pay cut in exchange for a more-flexible work arrangement.
