How do you create an office you want to visit?

Weekends feel like weekends again. Time to reflect yet also feeling incredibly busy with the family. Just how I like it. Although I have recently been writing more about not going to the office. I thought it made sense to write a little around how the office may be in the future. How do youContinue reading “How do you create an office you want to visit?”

The caterpillar office is about to spread its wings and fly! 

The transformation of the office has been ongoing for a number of years. We just haven’t really noticed the slight tweaks here and there. It’s more noticeable when you compare recent builds to those from a few decades ago. The transformation now though is ramping up.

Podcasts, pride and a spot of gardening!

Some weeks are quiet. Some weeks you don’t feel like you stop. My week was the latter! But two things really stand out from my week.

With an adapting workforce, what offerings do youContinue reading “There is still value in the office!”

Seek out opportunities during disruption

The light is shining at the end of the tunnel. The buzz and excitement of visiting cities, visiting the office and most importantly seeing 3D people! Gosh imagine that first handshake or hug (when allowed)! The positive feel at the moment is good BUT we must also not forget that we can’t just return toContinue reading “Seek out opportunities during disruption”

The office is dead. The office is dead. Bull&%$t

The office is dead. The office is dead. Bullshit!  Is it me or does it feel like a war of words at the moment between corporates – some pushing for a return to the office, others advertising a more remote future for the business and then others like PwC formalising a hybrid working model. ButContinue reading “The office is dead. The office is dead. Bull&%$t”

Does our entire lives need to be a hybrid?

No matter which side of the fence you are on it is clear – a hybrid working model, mixing remote and office working is here to stay.
