Making a Comeback

Returning to Physical Workplace: The Record Wants to Know How You Feel

After teleworking for more than 2 years, the majority of NIH’s workforce will begin returning in person later this month, in phases. There’s excitement and loads of questions and potential anxieties to address about our reunion with colleagues—practical as well as emotional and psychological. 

The NIH Record is planning a special series about all aspects of the Big Return and we’re asking our readers to send a few sentences and/or a selfie of what excites/scares you about coming back to the physical workspace. Email or if you prefer to remain anonymous, use our feedback form at
