Large corporations are now operating A & B teams, with 1 week working in the workplace and 1 week working remotely from home. Schools have also adapted with remote lessons successfully conducted via online communication platforms. A system which will integrate as a valuable tool as we look to the future.
All of these dramatic changes in such a short period of time, coupled with the national lockdowns has given people a time for pause and reflection. This can especially be said of the UK where we are seeing people re-evaluate their lives with the realisation that working remotely does work, and allows better time management of their day. Instead of wasting hours each day commuting to the office, the extra hours can be spent with family or pursuing personal interests.
As a result, sales of country properties in the UK have risen, as families swap the big city in search of more space and a better lifestyle. The same can also be said for the Algarve, as we are seeing an increase in enquires from the North of Portugal and a high level globally from people looking to relocate or buy a second home. Where would you rather work remotely or spend the next lockdown?
