For those who have been working from home resolutely for the last 18 months, the news that the nation will soon be expected to return to the office has received, well, mixed reactions.
After all, the ‘new normal’ has its perks (reduced commuting is a big one) as well as some drawbacks, like reduced collaboration with colleagues and increased screen time. This has naturally led employers to consider a ‘hybrid model’ of working, that will possibly see workers return to the office for two or three days a week, as opposed to the pre-Covid mandated five office days. It’s a big shift and one which could dramatically change the face of office life.
