The pandemic has forced a lot of us to work from home exclusively for almost a year; something that many would have considered impossible before Coronavirus made it necessary. According to research, 9 out of 10 office workers have been enjoying the challenges and unexpected freedoms of multitasking between work and home life while working remotely – and they don’t want that to stop once lockdown is over. Vicky Sayers is joined by TV presenter from Channel 5’s The Gadget Show, Harry Wallop, to discuss the pros and cons of working from home – and whether it’s time for all employers to embrace working flexibility even after lockdown.
The Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in unemployment, unrest and the majority of people unable to see most of their friends and family. Even with the different support networks in place in the UK, reports of loneliness and mental health issues are on the rise as we find ourselves navigating a third national lockdown. Vicky Sayers is joined by Andy Lopata, Professional Relationships Strategist and author of “Just Ask: Why Seeking Support Is Your Greatest Strength”, to talk about the importance of asking for help when you need it.
The Coronavirus pandemic has brought about a huge shift in the way we all live our daily lives – not least the fact that since March of this year, whoever has been able to has been working remotely. But what does this mean for the role of the physical office as we know it? Recorded just before the government’s latest announcement of a second lockdown in England (but still extremely pertinent), Vicky Sayers is joined by Brandon Hollihan: co-founder of property management company, Castleforge Partners. He shares his experience of working from home and advocates for the importance of the office within business culture.
