The best and worst parts
Working from home, it has its ups and downs. Whether that be a conference call in the kitchen while teaching your kids, or answering emails from the comfort of your bed. Everyone has their own way of dealing with it. Three weeks on from office lockdown we asked our staff to come up with what they thought were the best and worst parts of working from home. The results were varied, from some questionable perks to some entertaining dilemmas, here’s what we found.
What do we like?
He likes...Colin, Sales
Not having to make myself all beautiful for meetings!
I can eat, watch TV and work at the same time!
Oh...Karen, Client Care
Nothing, I hate it!
The best bit?Kam, Sales
NO travel, as soon as I log-off I am home!
Sounds good...Martin, Payroll
The view from the window is better and I can listen to rock music all day!
Seeing my baby boy when I need a break.
Efficient...Joli, Client Care
Being within the same walking distance from the kettle and the toilet.
The little things...Paul, Marketing
Drinking superior tea!
'Lovely weather'...Josh, Marketing
Not having to make small-talk while waiting for the kettle to boil!
Too efficient?!Steve, Payroll
The thing I most like about working from home is ease of access to the kettle. It’s very efficient.
The thing I least like about working from home is working while brewing coffee. It’s too efficient.
What don’t we like?
What do you do?Josh, Marketing
Trying to explain to family what I actually do for a living (apparently all I do is swear under my breath and colour things in).
Social contact...Tom, Finance
Lack of daily conversation.
Lonely...Ben, Client Care
Not having anyone to talk to (distract), so it can be quite lonely! Luckily I have the radio keeping me sane!
Not the only one..Colin, Sales
The snacking… I’m going to be double the size by the time the lock down is lifted.
Same four walls...Karen, Client Care
The thing I least like about working from home is working on a laptop, being in the same space all the time from when I get up to when I go to bed. The fact that my house is busy with adults all doing fun things and I can’t because I’m working.
