RoundUp 6th edition
As always, we start our newsletter with a roundup of our latest poll.
Are rising travel costs influencing decisions to work predominantly remote and come into an office less?
According to Duncan Brown, we are facing the tightest squeeze on living standards since modern records began in 1955.

Price inflation has shot through the roof, up 10 times from 12 months ago.
In our last newsletter, we said some companies are opting for a comprehensive re-onboarding as employees ‘return to work’. Becoming re-acquainted with who we have become is important – as all of us have changed in some way since the global pandemic hit. To build the strong relationships that research has shown increase trustworthy behaviour sixfold, new mechanisms are necessary. It seems we may need to rethink that phrase ‘return to work’ too, as constantly shifting landscapes confirm many of us will never physically return to the five-day-a-week workplace we had once known.
