The people who hate working from home
City CV CEO & Founder, Victoria McLean, featured in the BBC Worklife article: The people who hate working from home, on June 20 2022.
Below is a short excerpt.
The Hybrid Working Divide
The loudest voices may be remote-work advocates, but plenty of other people can’t get back to the office fast enough..
The motivations of these people might vary – some long for the sociability of the office, while others prefer a clear boundary between work and home. But regardless, companies will need to work out how to accommodate the needs of people who want to be in offices as well as those who don’t, as they map out their post-pandemic working models.
Victoria McLean, UK-based founder & CEO of career consultancy City CV, says that businesses are navigating tricky circumstances in which it can be almost impossible to keep everyone happy. “A lot of businesses I talk to are now offering hybrid working, but have one day a week when everyone has to be in the office. This seems to be a good balance of flexible working with having everyone regularly together.”
