We rent the office inside a normally well used and busy resource centre. It was strange to see the centre and the office so quiet and still.
By coincidence pre-Covid the branch executive was discussing whether we needed to have a permanent office in a fixed location.
Now, like many organisations we need to think afresh about whether there should be different ways of working. A possible blend of office and home working?
While home working has worked very well for some it has been pretty dreadful for others. If you live in a bedsit/HMO or if you are trying to home school kids and work from a over crowded flat you will have a very different perspective.
Lets see what happens. I don't think there is any need for organisations to rush into any long term decisions. It is too early to say that the end of the office is nigh.
