I think we often have 2nd thoughts of making a move due to the relationships we have formed in our current company.
But has COVID, and an increase of remote work, prevented those bonds from growing like they used to, maybe causing the reason to stay, to not be as important as it once was.
Particularly, if you found solace in those in-office conference rooms one on ones, or out of office lunch outings, happy hours, team building adventures, etc.
Yes, I know some who have been remote for years, are probably not effected one way or the other.
I’m thinking about the others who might need/enjoy the social, in-person, interactions with colleagues to help them in their career well-being.
