Imagine this workplace scenario: As the pandemic recedes, employees in Company X are given the option of returning to the office or working remotely. Mary decides to return to the home office in New York. Her former office mate, John, decides to remain in Omaha, Neb., where he has been living since the pandemic began.

They have the same titles and the same responsibilities. Should they also have the same pay?

That is just one of many compensation issues companies are likely to wrestle with in coming months, as businesses reimagine how to pay and reward employees in a world where some workers may not return to the office.
