They say you can learn a lot from a person by how they react in a challenging situation. Being caught in a thunderstorm or untangling wires can make our masks slip, revealing our true emotions.
During these extraordinary past few weeks, we’ve seen people and companies respond to COVID-19 in a variety of ways: fear, optimism, panic, humour, strength, uncertainty and curiousity. But one uniting factor seems to be this: resilience.
Life goes on, days move forward, and people are adapting to their situation. Working from home has become the norm for many of us, although a recent workspace study led by Hannah Nardini of WKspace, showed that by week six of working from home, the novelty was wearing off. Now that we’re in week eight, people’s enjoyment levels are starting to drop as cabin fever is well and truly setting in.
Now that we’re being encouraged to return to work where possible, we’ve been looking ahead, both short- and long-term, to consider the best strategy for welcoming employees back into the workplace.
