It’s Off To Work We Go… Or Do We?

Sarah Roy

Posted by Sarah Roy

Many of us are considering our options for returning to work. For me personally I am thankful that the worry has so far been worse than the reality, albeit I am not even slightly oblivious to the horrible circumstances many folk have found themselves in.

We have adjusted and will continue to adjust the way we do things to work around obstacles, and there will be benefits from those changes beyond their original purpose – I for one, will spend less time in the car and in airports avoiding bumping into people I know at 6 in the morning and having to chat politely.

I will have the option of avoiding 2 hours in the car for a 20 minute meeting as this can be done through one of the newly acquired technological tools of the trade, and folk won’t take offence as they get it now too. It’ll be a matter of being selective as there is undoubtedly merit to face to face meetings and all the positives they bring.

Our investment clients are experiencing turbulent times and we have been there for them through this volatility, reinforcing the message that with a risk based multi-asset portfolio, you are less likely to take a wrong turn – this has helped but we’ve got to take the rough with the smooth.

I am now left to deliberate how often the team may need to use the bathroom in an average working day – calculations I never envisaged having to do when studying economics as a cub!

Take care and stay safe and well

Stephen
