The last twelve months have been a steep learning curve for everyone – understanding the role of an epidemiologist and the “R value”, getting to grips with the meaning of “viral load” and “herd immunity” – all things with which we would not have been familiar were it not for the Covid pandemic.
We have also learnt the importance of resilience within the workplace: how to survive within a new environment and adapt to new ways of working. The speed at which pharmaceutical companies met the challenge of finding, testing and manufacturing a Covid vaccine is just one impressive example.
As the UK starts to open up after its third and longest lockdown, the question on everyone’s mind is how much will change and how much will stay the same in the post-pandemic world?
Location isn’t everything
When it comes to office-based work, the last year has demonstrated that location is not as crucial as some originally thought. The evolution of technology has enabled employees to collaborate and work effectively from multiple remote locations. Businesses are re-examining how they use their office space with some looking to make savings through office closures and others aiming to accommodate team growth without the need to provide more desk space.
Over recent weeks, there has been much talk of law firms implementing restructuring programmes and adopting new ways of working. The long-established model of locally-based teams has persisted for perhaps longer than might have been expected and it’s not surprising that businesses are choosing this moment to question how things should be done in the future.
