'Culture Shock' Expected As Australians Return To Offices In Coming Weeks

Australian workers are eagerly eyeing a return to their offices, but an occupational health psychology expert says that could spark culture shock for some.

"If not, our offices will be their warm and welcoming selves, with some additional precautions, when we feel it's safe to return.

"Twitter was one of the first companies to go to a work from home model in the face of COVID-19, but we don't anticipate being one of the first to return to offices."
