Back to work, a short guide to returning to the office

Back to work, a short guide to returning to the office

It’s back to work time, as in getting back to the office. Working from home at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic was welcomed, but for many people, the novelty – and the productivity – has worn off. Getting back to work doesn’t have to be a drag and we believe there will be a blend of the old and the new; it won’t be either/or, it’s both.

In this guide about getting back to work we look at getting back to work in a different way. In a way that we feel embraces our values as a business.

1. We are humans and we connect in amazing ways

One of the most important facets of getting back to work is the connection we share with each other. Teamwork at RocketNet is the dreamwork and it’s a value we hold dear.  We cannot be the team we want to be from a distance. Look, we don’t need to be together 24/7, and we believe in a healthy work-life balance, but we are creatures who thrive on human interaction and we wither away without it. That’s true for even the most introverted among us.

Pick a sport. To be the best at that sport there is a need to build a team that is the vehicle used to get to the top. “Not tennis, or Formula One”, you might say, “Those aren’t team sports”. Not true. In Formula One, for example, you have personal trainers, doctors, engineers, a pit crew, a team manager and the list goes on. You even have a team driver who pushes the other driver to be his best. They feed off of each other’s expertise, passion, and energy and I’m sure they can’t wait to get back to work.

2. The advantages of getting back to work at the office

We need that team energy in the office, to feed off of each other’s brilliance and to spark creativity when brainstorming and collaborating. Also to uplift each other when one of us is down (and we all have our down days). To be there for each other for those off-the-cuff communication moments perhaps in an emergency or when dealing with a difficult customer. This magic only happens when you get back to work at the office.

These are some of the most important reasons for getting back to work at the office. There is an atmosphere and a team culture of support that is created which pushes us to be our best within an office environment and separates us from our competitors. As Sasha, one of our sales support consultants says: “Getting back to work at the office for me has helped a lot in terms of getting back into a routine of actually leaving the house in the mornings and having somewhere to go. The physical social interaction has helped to stimulate me emotionally and mentally because we are all able to relate and feed off of each other’s energy which is something a lot of us craved during lockdown”.
