“People have enjoyed being back at work,” Darryl adds.
“The social interaction is part of it, but you can also reach decisions more quickly. You’re more aware of what’s happening across the team and you feel like you’re working together.”
Someone else who’s happy to be back in the office is Kat Vitou, founder of Well Life Tribe. And it’s no surprise that staff at the wellbeing platform, based in Cobham, Surrey, are finding healthier ways to commute…
“Most of the staff live locally, so they can walk, run or cycle in,” explains Kat.
“We keep our distance in the office, but those of us who’ve come in so much prefer being back together again,” she says.
“We like the flexibility – a couple of people are still working from home. There’s only so much banter you can have on Zoom and everyone appreciates having that time together as a team so much more.”
