Without referring to the DVLA in particular, what is it about working from home in general that so obsesses some?
If, and I emphasise - if - a business functions well and remains profitable with its employees working from home... what is the LOGICAL reason to insist that they "get back to work"?
Anecdote is not data - but I've also had occasion to work from home when I lived in Norway (bad weather - contrary to the accepted belief - sometimes prevents people from travelling) and I can truthfully say that I worked more efficiently on various projects with the ability to focus and concentrate in a way that would not have been possible in the office itself with all the inevitable distractions that come with office 'life'. My boss was happy, I was happy. And I'm not alone... others have said the same.
So, to those who object to others - who are able - to WFH - please tell me why you object, in principle, to this? I'm genuinely interested... if a little puzzled.
As for the DVLA, how much of the delay is due to people working from home compared to the possibility that the institution simply does not employ enough people to deal with the workload?
