We’re at it again!

Looking outside you may not believe that it’s summer, but we assure you it is! How do we know? It’s that time of the year again where we close the office, pack up our laptops and phones and work from the comfort of, well, wherever!

Last year the most popular remote working choice was a deck chair in the garden, sun shining and an ice cold drink in hand. This year, it may very well be the kitchen table whilst looking longingly at that drenched deckchair, a hot cup of coffee and a cardigan, however, we are a team of optimists, so fingers crossed!

This is the third year of our remote working initiative and we are excited to leave the commute behind for a whole month and spend more quality time with our families.

Roger and Rachel have both been hobbling around the office on crutches over the past week so a much needed rest is on the (rainy) horizon.

The initiative has proved hugely successful over the past two years and we have no doubt that it will be as equally successful this year. Our love of technology allows us to provide a seamless service to our clients from wherever we choose, and service delivery standards remain unchanged.

Remote working is on the rise across many sectors with employees who work remotely often outperforming those who are office based and we are proud to have been pioneers of this movement.

The majority of the team have young children and we all know that school holidays can often mean childcare worries and extra expense so the flexibility to be at home alleviates some of those stresses. As a company that encourages a healthy work life balance, we ensure we practice what we preach to our clients!

We hope everyone has an enjoyable summer, gets the opportunity to relax and spend quality time with their loved ones. See you at the Sidings in August!
