The City of Melbourne is trying to lure workers back to the office with free drinks, doughnuts and movie tickets to try to kick-start the pandemic-hit CBD retail sector .

FOMO Fridays will run until June 4.

Back in December 2020, Victorian Premier Dan Andrews announced that private and public sector workers would be returning to work in the CBD.

Many had mixed emotions about this, including ANZ Senior Manager Ben Ward, who spoke to Joshua Ward about post-pandemic working life.
