There is little doubt that the transition from office based work to a home environment has awakened us to a new way of working, with all the benefits that come with cutting out the daily commute.
However, permanent remote working can actually cause severe health issues as outlined by the Royal Society for Public Health. including feeling isolated and less connected to colleagues, developing musculoskeletal problems and disturbed sleep patterns due to being unable to switch off.
At the height of the pandemic in 2020, the Office for National Statistics conducted a survey to understand the attitudes to home working by both employees and employers, with salient points indicating that, where homeworking was an option, both businesses and individuals preferred a hybrid approach, and nearly two fifths of businesses expected 75% of their workforce to return to their normal place of work going forwards.
As we are now seeing, employers are tending to adapt to a more flexible way of working, incorporating all the best features of being home and office based.
This can take the form of employee rotas, core hours and office hubs. All designed to establish a better work/life balance for employees, whilst reducing budget spend on costly office overheads.
To this end, Weatherill House Enterprise Centre can offer a smaller, friendlier service with a business community vibe. Whether you are a business seeking a permanent, local office hub for your employees, or a sole trader /start-up who needs to work away from home, we have several flexible options to suit, that can facilitate 1-6 days in a modern, professional environment.
Located in the Croydon area, the enterprise centre has parking available (with electric charging points) and is in an excellent position for public transport links.
In a post-Covid future, hybrid working will improve our quality of life, our productivity and our mental wellbeing, whilst continuing to support local economies.
