Overview

In this episode Russell and Mike discuss the issue of the moment for many people – working from home! Between them your hosts already have 30 years of experience of working from home themselves and managing a home based/remote workforce.

We discuss the implications for saving money, premises, flexibility and carbon reduction. However there is a balance to be struck and so the downsides of increased costs, work-life balance and mental health are also discussed.

Take away actions
  • People working from home – establish a space to work, set time to turn off
  • Small Business Owners – schedule and take holidays, have a tech-free break
  • Bigger businesses – look after your people better – spend that saved money on establishing methods of managing a dispersed workforce
