The last two years have been brutal.
Make no bones about it, the pandemic has presented a very real existential threat not just to a great number of people, but also to a great number of businesses.
So its no surprise that much of the conversation around Covid and its impact on our working lives has been negative.
Weve worried about cashflow drying up, supply chain solidity, job security, isolation, mental health, the dangers of returning to the workplace, a loss of mentoring for young people and a good many more issues over the period of the lockdowns and beyond.
But without wanting to claim we are entirely out of the woods just yet or that everything in the garden is suddenly rosy now might be the time to start changing our mindset to something a little more positive.
Many of us have been away from our offices and workplaces for some time as a result of the pandemic.
But with the ending of the furlough scheme at the end of September, the return to work will continue to gather speed.
Naturally, having been away for so long, many of us will be anxious about returning back to public spaces and mixing face to face with our colleagues again.
