My company recognised that different people have different needs. There is not a one size fits all anymore.
Many of my colleagues are at a life stage where working from home means staring at the same four walls in a one bedroom flat or even sharing that one bedroom flat with a partner. That has been rough for them.
At my stage in life I live in a 3 bedroom house and my kids have left home (mostly) so one of those bedrooms acts as an office. At night I shut the door on work.
My company has a number of offices and I intend to put on my red jersey and beam down to one of the offices in early May. I've got friends I've only seen on Zoom calls within the past 14 months.
Some colleagues have already been in. Their feedback has been that it's a bit of a ghost ship at the moment because the company has a 1/3rd capacity rule in place. It's not the same as it was.
The vaccine status is a bit strange. In the UK they started vaccinations from the eldest down and have got as far as 1st jab for those in their 40s with 10million having had their 2nd jab. Again, many of my colleagues won't yet have had their 1st jab because they are too young. Some have had COVID and their message is pretty much unanimous. Get the damn jab!
Many colleagues took the decision that there has been so much change that they may as well go the whole hog and change jobs entirely. We certainly live in interesting times
