Going back to work can be an exciting but scary step to take.
This experience has given everybody a little bit of fear for when they step out of their front door. For me personally, I have another concern that rules are slightly different in Wales. As I live just across the border, my household are currently still working from home, therefore I am worried that I could be responsible for bringing the virus into my household. However, our office has taken every step to ensure that they comply with government guidelines, which has given all members of staff and clients peace of mind that all necessary precautions have been met. Although I would imagine, no matter what steps are put in place, some people will still be very concerned.
On the other hand, I cannot wait to get back to normality. Working from home has been a whole new experience (you can read about my experiences of working from home in my previous blog post), however, I definitely prefer the office environment. At Obsidian, we see many friendly faces throughout the day and I have really missed that interaction. Speaking to clients, customers and colleagues all day long can really benefit your working skills but also your personal social skills. I am looking forward to returning to my daily routine and having that bit of normality back. I am also excited to work along side my colleagues again as we all work very well as a team and enjoy our daily work together.
I believe that going back to work will have a very positive outcome for personal development as it has been so long since we have had our normal working routine.
