Here at Synergi’s head office, we’ve had a busy and somewhat fraught week, armed with screwdrivers, cleaning equipment, PPE equipment, plastic screens, and hammers. A whole day was spent dismantling desks and break out areas, carrying them up, and down, stairs, and re-assembling them all in some sort of arrangement that meets the new return to work safety guidelines. It has been exhausting. And what became very clear quite quickly was that we can’t have everyone back in the office, not all at the same time – even if they all wanted to. So the next challenge was to figure out who to have back in the office, when to have them and for how long, how to monitor those who want to come back, how to make sure our team feels safe and happy in the office, how to keep communicating with those who either don’t need to work in the office, but can do so at home and are happy to, or those who just feel safer working from home and how often we need to check this is all still the case or if we need to change things up, or down. Phew! It makes your head hurt just thinking about it – and we bet we’re not the only ones.
