Now that schools are heading back, it’s starting to feel like the begining of the end for the pandemic. Whilst we know that it isn’t over, things are definitely going back to normal, or at least a new normal. We take a look at the way life has changed for London due to the pandemic.
OUR OUTSIDE SPACES
Flexible working isn’t a new concept. In fact Anna Whitehouse (or @mother_pukka) has been championing flex appeal for YEARS. Companies have traditionally resisted due to a stagnant view that working from home means people are less productive, or because they simply didn’t think it was possible. What the pandemic has really shown is that it is not only possible for people to work from home, but also hugely beneficial for employers. On average an individual will be doing pure work for around three hours a day. Breaks, meetings, chatting with co-workers and simple concentration means that a lot of the time in the office is distraction. Working from home has not only given people a better work life balance, increasing the ability to spend time with family, exercise or cook brilliant meals; but it has also seen an increase in productivity. Lack of interruption from colleagues or events happening around the office mean that we’re actually working more from home, not less. At the height of lockdown, over 57% of workers in London were working from home, and of that over 91% have stated they want the flexibility in working to continue long after the offices are open.
OUR FREE TIME
The pandemic has definitely had an impact on London. It has brought loss to thousands of families and devestated our economy. As London rebuilds, we see this as an opportunity to rebuild better, to focus on the good that we’ve taken from extreme measures. Our flexibility of time, emphasis on the local economy and small brands and craving for authentic connection are all great things that we can benefit from as we all move forward together.
