The founder of hotel giant Meriton Harry Triguboff slammed companies who provide flexible working arrangements at a business breakfast in Sydney on Wednesday.

The 88-year-old said employees needed to return to offices because they were only ‘working half the time’ at home and laid the blame on ‘parasite’ bosses.

Daily Mail Australia conducted its own poll to canvass the opinion of its readers and found 66 per cent believe they are not less productive working from home.

One reader claimed Mr Triguboff’s comment was ‘out of touch’ while another person said bosses could easily track productivity of their employees when working from home.
