Coronavirus - again!

I make no apology for returning to the subject of Coronavirus - after all, no other phenomenon has had quite the same effect on the global economy.

Last week, we reflected on lessons we might learn from the changes we have had to make to respond to the virus - and, of course, to governmental restrictions on individual and organisational activity.

One of the changes is the encouragement of, and then insistence on, home working.  This has given firms a useful chance to experiment with, or refine, their approaches to supporting remote working.

I am sure all is not perfect for many companies -  but if they use this as a 'live experiment' they should be able to create a future where home working is effective for many employees - and where costs (of space) are lowered.

At least some good might arise from this awful situation.
