It appears companies are ramping up their return to the office requirements. According to a recent survey published in CNBC, 90% of companies plan to implement return-to-office policies by the end of 2024 with nearly 30% saying their company will threaten to fire employees who don’t comply with in-office requirements. 

Needless to say, a lot of employees are not thrilled by this managerial push. So what are employees to do if they are feeling increased stress and corporate burnout?

One trend that seems to be catching on is the mini-retirement. What is a mini-retirement? Big questions like this are always better with really smart friends so I thought I’d answer this one with Author and Early Retirement Expert, Jillian Johnsrud.

Overview: Mini Retirements with Jillian Johnsrud

Jillian Johnsrud reviews the following:

  • The details of a mini-retirement
  • How mini-retirements can improve your life
  • What employees can do to experience a mini-retirement

Carpe Diem Quote:

Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.
