Working from home certainly isn’t a new idea with an estimated 70% of the global workforce is already working from home at least one day a week in 2019. However, with the coronavirus causing so much uncertainty, Midwich made the decision to quickly adapt to the circumstances and we now have over 99% of our UK & Ireland workforce operating from their homes.
Overall, this process has been reasonably smooth and handled really well by the business.
For me, this change has been easy enough. I already have a home office, I don’t have any children, and my work can be completed from anywhere. However, for some, it’s not as simple. I’ve had a chat with a few people from around the business to see how working from home has affected them and what tips they have for everyone else.
