    We’ve asked employers if they’re thinking about letting staff work remotely after lockdown – here it’s your turn to tell us what you think!

    How have you found working from home? Do you enjoy it – are you more productive? Or are you desperate to get back to the office?

    If your employer offers remote working as an option after lockdown, would you take it?

    I’ve found it definitely has ups and downs.

    It’s obviously nice to have no commute, and to wear slightly more comfortable clothing. To be honest, I do think I’ve been a bit more productive – I chat to colleagues more than I realised!

    But I do miss the social aspect of the office, getting to see people regularly. It’s also annoying because what used to be a quick pop along the office for a simple question now has to either be an email (and a potentially lengthy wait) or a whole meeting.

    Probably would find it easier working from home if I could go out somewhere afterwards…struggling with no pub! But I certainly hope I can keep working from home at least a few days a week when all this is over.

    I’m finding that I’m not really having a place to relax once the ‘working day’ is finished. Don’t really have a desk area so having to work from the living room/dining table which is mildly annoying for the rest of the house. While I don’t miss the act of commuting, I was always grateful to have the time to wake up and get my brain started for the day.

    We’re all learning new ways to self-motivate and restore a sense of purpose so it’s a good time for self-reflection…

    Just spotted this article from Forbes on the pros and cons on working from home, and now that we’re well into a routine and some businesses are thinking about opening back up, what are you feeling works best?
