Manor Marketing is geared up to work from home #WFH. Everyone has mobiles, laptops and another screen to use. Everything is online and shared. #RemoteResponse and #BuisnessContinuity is our total #focus for our #clients and our local #community too.
And we are moving into new offices this weekend. It's actually right next door to our current office, but a self-contained building. Almost like a little house. No-one apart from us, will be going in or out. And it's being deep cleaned before we go in.
It's on three levels - downstairs is big and with our six desks, we can be more than 1m+ apart easily. Level two is a bathroom and an office which is the green screen room, as well as a general breakout area.Level three is a kitchen and another large room which is where a massive smart TV is being installed, together with #online meeting facilities.
Why am I excited about the new office? Or even going ahead with it? And why am i #investing right now?
Because we have to protect now and the future. And when we are all asked to stay at home for a long period of time, we're all going to go a bit stir crazy. With or without kids! Our new office will be a safe haven when we all need a break. It's stocked well with cleaning materials, snacks and drinks, and there will be rules about cleaning. And as long as everyone is healthy, kids can be safe upstairs watching Netflix or Youtube, playing a game, getting creative, or revising etc. - whilst we're downstairs ,doing videos on having online meetings. Or frankly just having a bit of a catch up! And no, I'm not saying everyone has to work form the office, but giving people options is the smart thing to do.
This situation isn't ideal, but taking care of your #team, #business and the local community is not only a duty of care, it's the right thing to do. Physically and Mentally.
