Workers Prefer Working From Home Despite The Prime Minister`s Plea

Despite the prime minister`s appeal that everyone across England should return to work, most offices appeared to empty in central Birmingham.

The majority of people disregarded Boris Johnson`s plea that from Monday all workers “should be going to work”. The recent spike of the coronavirus in some parts of England has prompted fears, reducing the number of people returning to offices.

After announcing that it`s “important people should be going back to work now”, the prime minister had to exert himself to try to lead by example. However, soon after lunchtime he left his office in Downing Street and spent the rest of the day working from his country residence at Chequers.

During the lockdown, most people across the country have been working from home hence moving to the offices isn`t necessary to them anymore.

A lawyer at DWF, Mark Castello, said: “It’s my COVID commute. I live just outside Crewe, so I cycle to Crewe and then get the train. I’m coming in today because there is some hard documentation I have to deal with. There is absolutely no reason for us to be in this office every day – I can do my job perfectly well from anywhere.”

However, some legal secretaries and support staff complained the amount of work has increased as lawyers working from home rely on them to do most of the work from the office.

Christine Williams, a legal secretary at another law firm, said that she had been “very, very busy for the last few months. In the office, it’s mostly secretaries and we are busier than normal because the lawyers are at home and they send us what they can’t do from home”.
