With 1 Sentence, Google's CEO Revealed the Best Reason NOT to Return to the Office I've Heard Yet.

The argument is self-centered concentrating on a"community" based on employer location, not the employees'.

Google has 9.5 billion reasons to keep knowledge workers on the plantation - not a sense of community.

From the article:

"Pichai says Google is spending $9.5 billion on offices and data centers this year...

Pichai points out another overlooked reason for returning to the office. The physical space your business occupies provides a "vital anchor" to your local community. It creates a connection that doesn't exist with a distributed team working in different places.

In addition, when your employees come to the office, they contribute to the communities where they work. They take public transportation, stop for coffee, eat lunch in restaurants, or stop for a few errands before heading home. 

All of those things add value to the community and the businesses around you. That might be harder to count, but that doesn't mean it isn't real or important. In fact, it might be one of the best reasons I've heard for bringing people back together. "
