It’s terrible that the whole world is being held hostage to a pandemic and nothing will bring loved ones back who have been taken by the virus.
However, we may see some longterm good from the UK government lockdown.
- Reduced Carbon Emissions
- Limit travel to necessary
- Remote working is being embraced
- Quieter roads
- Quite public transport
We should see, but probably won’t, the scrapping of the HS2
Why? Because of a reduction in travel. Technology has proven itself during the global lockdown.
Office-based business have benefited from technology to allow employees to work from home. Working from home is well documented to help support employee wellbeing. Some research has shown workers are 20% more efficient and that it provides a better work-life balance for office employees.
Although we are all technically further apart (at least 2m). Technology has brought the whole world together.
Please take care of your friends, family and neighbours at a safe distance.
