A change in mindset
Asking to work from home was for many considered an ‘off limits’ conversation within the workplace, being perceived as an easy convenience and not something linked to high productivity. However, over the years with a big focus on office diversity and inclusion as well as companies being seen to support women and more so, promote the ‘home life balance’, the concept of flexi working hours was something becoming more than ‘norm’ within the traditional workplace setting. With then the whole world being thrown into utter chaos with the spread of the new pandemic, daily zoom calls and working from the spare bedroom, became something that many office workers were thrown into and more surprisingly, that many have adapted to well in spite of the various difficulties that the new work environment brought with it.
Striving in times of adversity
It goes without saying that the concept of the conventional 9-5 office job seems almost obsolete to a degree with whole teams proving that companies have continued to function and in many cases, succeed, despite the physical distance between colleagues and teams. Although, it can be said there are many benefits to the home working environment, team conmarade may have taken a side step with many events such as Christmas outings and monthly staff meetings being cancelled with the restrictions in place.
We must not underestimate the importance of team building events, not only to help build morale but to help with self esteem, particularly for those who have struggled with the new online rapport and the mental health difficulties that this may trigger.
