Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told The New York Times that permanent work from home could seriously impact social interaction and employees’ mental health. “In a physical meeting, you’re talking to the person next to you…you connect with them for two minutes before and after,” he said. He also said an all-remote setup would be “replacing one dogma with another dogma”.

As certain tech companies like Twitter prefer their employees to work from home forever, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has warned that making remote work permanent could have serious consequences for social interaction and mental health for workers as virtual video calls cannot replace in-person meetings.

In an interaction with The New York Times, Nadella said that an all-remote setup would be “replacing one dogma with another dogma”.

“What does burnout look like? What does mental health look like? What does that connectivity and the community building look like? One of the things I feel is, hey, maybe we are burning some of the social capital we built up in this phase where we are all working remote. What’s the measure for that?” Nadella was quoted as saying.
