We do a little of both
Same here, some things by hand like "seasoned" pans... no detergent ever. Sharp knives by hand to keep from dulling the blades. Plates, glasses and of course table knives, forks, spoons in the dishwasher.
Some years ago, I had office space at an agency that did that, provide office space. Nobody had to unload and then put the clean coffee cups and small plates or silverware away. The break room had two dishwashers with movable placards "Dirty" and "Clean". It worked rather well.
