Before the omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus made businesses reconsider plans to return to their workplaces, people who have had the luxury of being able to work at home were beginning to consider the upside and downside of returning to in-person employment. There’s no question that the world has changed a lot in the nearly two years since since the pandemic began.

Tom's first guest today is Thomas P. Farley, an etiquette expert who writes a syndicated column called “Ask Mister Manners,” and who appears in the media and consults with companies about workplace etiquette.

Thomas Farley joins us on Zoom from New York City.
