Good to see work continuing so well. We are lucky to have an institution like Belfast Harbour behind it.

We are going on a rota'ed basis from September too. I think its too early to tell what will happen, but I think the debate might have gone full circle though, I see opinion pieces and the like making a re-commitment to the office, many missing contact time and such.

Further, I think we will see the death of hot desking; meaning firms need to rethink their space needs (increasing them in many cases were firms are still viable) it might be good for cheaper cities like Belfast, Manchester etc as London and Dublin max out available office space.

Also - working at the kitchen table might be OK for a few months, but ergonomically its a disaster. Once companies start getting on the hook for home office furniture as tools required for the job ... add into that the requirement for a stable and fast internet connection; which companies long term won't be able to escape paying for... we might yet see a sudden re-commitment to the office environment...
