go in to work

Use the phrase "go in" to talk about someone going to their workplace:

What time are you going in today?

However, you usually use "go in" only when you're not already in the workplace. When you're at work, you use "come in" or "get in":

She got in at 7 o'clock this morning.

You can come in a little later if you want.
