MG at Home: The Working From Home Diary

Matt Mint, Executive Director, Client Team 

After five long months of being away from the office I am pleased to report it looks exactly the same. Well, not *exactly* because there are still only a handful of people in as we dip our toes in the water of a safe return to work. Sort of like a working weekend, but with face masks.

I’ve loved being in the office this week. Seeing a few familiar faces has made me really happy, as has having a printer and not working from my dining room table (I bloody love having a proper chair!).

I’ve also loved the days I’ve not been in the office though, having a (brief) lay in and hanging out with my family is awesome, as is meeting team mates who live local for coffee and a catch up in the sun.

In a nutshell, this week has really shown me that flexibility is amazing and how lucky we are to be able to shape our work around lives, rather than the other way around! It’s crazy to think we’d still be stuck in a more rigid way of working without COVID, and it makes me wonder what else we are doing because “that’s how it’s always been done” that could be forever improved for the better!
