Supposedly Kincardine grinding to its usual halt...

Surely another reason that shows we can’t go back to mass commuting and fighting our way into city centres to work - its stressful, wasteful, miserable and not particularly good for the environment

To quote an old army general, “Mother nature is more powerful than anything built by man”

I’d rephrase your statement to ignore nonsense claims by civil engineers to be more like, the bridge that should never need to be fully relied on given modern working practices, technology and more socially conscious location and economic strategies by business

Cheers, DBP :-)

One inch of snow ( well forecasted ) and the east of the country grinds to a halt. It really does my nut in.

I never want to go back to full time commuting to Edinburgh. Would be happy to go into the office maybe a few days a month at most for team/dept meetings, but rather work from home the rest of the time. Never thought I'd say that when I started working from home.

This is my signature

Radio Scotland at 8:25am (ish) saying that it was an HGV accident - jackknifed lorry ? to mostly blame.

"And working from home is absolutely sh1te. Anyone who says differently is a liar."

Must be a lot of porky pie types out there then ?

Why would anyone hate shuffling around the house in your baffies and dressing gown until mid morning while you`ve been catching up on latest netflix must see series all the while getting paid for it!

We all hate poverty, war, and injustice.
Unlike the rest of you squares.

Depends on your situation.

Although I`m back in the office 100% (bubbled with 6 colleagues in a 24 desk office) - WFH was fine for me.
I have a wee office-room where I can shut the door and work in peace.

Some of my colleagues don`t have that `luxury`,
one of them is going nuts, in a small two bedroom apartment with two pre-school kids running about mad - the creche is closed - both him and his wife working from home, perched on a stool at the kitchen table.
He`s desperate to get back to the office...

Wfh for me has been c90 mins less commuting time per day (worse in winter), £60-£70 a week on fuel not spent, £50-£60 a week on food and beverages saved (although still make stuff at home obviously), increased productivity. My quality of life is improved massively from wfh and they will have to drag me back in as I love it.

Do miss the banter to an extent and I know it’s not for everyone, I am lucky enough to have a big house with 2 rooms that can be used as offices so we can both work at home. For those in a small flat it must be torture though - especially in the example above where childcare was an issue.

I have nearly identical financial and time benefits to the poster above.

Ideally, I'd work 50/50 office / home, and that's from someone who worked from home for maybe 5 days in the previous 22 years before COVID.

I think I miss out on a lot of visual clues that there are issues with delivery / people when I'm just taking to a disembodied voice on Teams.

Worked from home/ travel globally for last 30 years. It is stressful for people with families and if there is restricted workspace. I built an office in the garden and it has made an enormous difference as I was no longer get interrupted by the family noise , distributions and life in general.
People have to live and it was stressful for my family. So for a number of years I have a purpose built shed. TV, refrigerator, lounging area. The productivity is the difference. Travel to / from work time of 2 hours per day equates to over 1 working day per week. Employers know this and know that they are getting better productivity with experienced professionals.

What if you live in the same town as your work? Not everyone travels 50 miles to get to work?

I've recently moved back to Dunfermline having lived in Edinburgh for a few years. Still work in Edinburgh but haven't been in the office since late March. I would love to be able to go back to be honest even if it is a few days a month. Working from Home has it's benefits but it can be a lonely experience where it can be really difficult to keep your own morale up and keep motivated. Appreciate everyone is different but I really miss the office banter and it helped keep my mood up.
Not sure what the future is for work offices and environments - Working from Home obviously works and saves companies a shed load.

Awight Pat!

I'm quite happy working from home.

Microsoft Teams or similar is a must though. Lots of chat a through the day, mostly about work and daily, short catch up calls (normally without webcam) and it's fine.

Very true. People forget it's possible to work locally. I wish there were more jobs where people actually live. Seems ridiculous that there are thousands travelling out of Fife to Edinburgh and Dundee. Plenty of vacant office and manufacturing units sat empty round Fife.
