Quote from: DrGreggles on June 19, 2021, 12:26:25 PMThe CEO sent out an email yesterday regarding what will happen post-pandemic.We won't be returning to the office unless there's work that can't be done remotely.So about 5-10% of staff (categorised as GREEN) will be onsite most days, with maybe another 5-10% (YELLOW) going in once a week.Anyone else (RED) will need prior approval from management.#NewNormalI suspect we won't be moving to bigger premises after all then!

QuoteDavid Abrahamovitch, founder of Grind coffee shops, said the relaxation on office-working rules was "very much welcomed".He previously said the four-week delay to restrictions ending "killed the summer" for his London-based coffee shops, which rely on commuters for business."We are looking forward to seeing more people back in the city," he said. "I hope lots of companies will follow the lead of those such as Apple and mandate a return to the office for at least three days per week."

Quote from: Pinball on July 06, 2021, 05:07:39 PMProbably just 2 accountants who organise the tax-dodging.

Quote from: SpiderChrist on July 06, 2021, 09:02:43 AMStarted going in once a fortnight for my own mental health, and now it looks like I'm going to be asked to go in full time from the end of July - I work at an exam board and the appeals process this year is expected to be fairly batshit busy. So the announcement that mask wearing is no longer mandatory after 19 July has increased my anxiety, as I would have to travel into work on busy trains bound for That London. The idea of getting on a seven o'clock Kings Cross train full of unmasked cunts is one I am trying not to dwell on.

Quote from: SpiderChrist on July 11, 2021, 09:57:18 AMThey said "get a later train to work and work later" because the trains will be quieter. Not really the point that the htrains are quieter if no fucker has to wear a mask. Virtually everyone else in the team has the option of getting to work without having to use public transport, which I don't. Had a row with my boss about on Friday, proper shouting and that. Told him that all the talk of looking after the mental health of staff was bullshit as the needs of the business will always come first. Now on a week's leave and feeling anxious about it pretty much constantly.
Quote from: flotemysost on July 11, 2021, 12:20:24 PMIs there a specific reason you need to physically be in the workplace during busy times - like something that can't be done remotely? If you're more stressed and anxious when you're having to get public transport then surely that's not conducive to being at your most focused and productive anyway.
Quote from: SpiderChrist on July 12, 2021, 08:48:18 AMA lot of temps are apparently being brought in and they will need supervision. That's it. Let those who can walk/cycle/drive into work do the supervision, I say.
Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on July 22, 2021, 03:11:10 PMJust this morning the boss announced they thought daily stand ups were a waste of time as we all generally take several days to do stuff and it's very repetitive. But they also thought about having us back in a day a week for the 'face time', most of the team were very enthusiastic and I felt the strongest opposition I was able to give was 'I don't mind coming in for collaborative stuff but also am fine working from home'.In offices I generally just whack my headphones on and stay out of everyone's way. I did enjoy having lunches as a social thing but that was mostly across teams so some of the people I really enjoyed nattering with won't even be there.
Quote...Asked about a return to offices, Mr Sunak told LinkedIn News: "I have spoken previously about young people in particular benefiting from being in offices."It was really beneficial to me when I was starting out in my career."He said that on a visit to Scotland last week he met young people starting careers in financial services, an industry Mr Sunak has also worked in."I was telling them the mentors that I found when I first started my job I still talk to and they have been helpful to me all through my career even after we have gone in different ways."I doubt I would have had those strong relationships if I was doing my summer internship or my first bit of my career over Teams and Zoom."And that's why I think for young people in particular being able to physically be in an office is valuable."...
Quote from: Shoulders?-Stomach! on September 06, 2021, 03:10:43 PMBack in this week, partial return. 2 days a week.
