And then there is us at Gascoynes. We have undertaken huge changes ourselves, some of which we would have made anyway but others purely adapting to the change in circumstances.
Last March our management team were ready to sign the lease on our new office when COVID-19 and government lockdown hit. We had huge reservations about investing in an office with the possibility of not being able to use it. We also had thoughts that this could be the catalyst for people working from home more often and with that our need to move would not be needed.
A visit to the site and a discussion about how we wanted to frame the next 10 years and more of Gascoynes was enough to move ahead with the switch and we couldn’t be happier with that decision.
Although we are yet to be in the office full time with all staff we have had a taste of it for about a week before Christmas and I know how excited the staff are to make the most of the new office. We’ll also be so happy to be able to invite clients in once its safe to do so as well.
