When she was instructed to work from home at the start of lockdown, Tamsyn* relished the thought of not having to wake up at the crack of dawn and sit in bumper-to-bumper traffic to get to her office.
Instead, her mornings were leisurely. She’d get out of bed just before 9am, make coffee, then settle down on the couch with her laptop.
But now, more than six months into lockdown, she says the novelty has worn off. In fact, Tamsyn says she’d give anything to spend a day at the office catching up with colleagues in the kitchen or talking through upcoming projects in the boardroom.
