a degree of reduction in business travel certainly, but I don’t think it will be anywhere near as big as we think…already one client “cant wait to get back in front of people!”
More remote working will be driven purely by the reduction in operating costs (look at the big blue chips in London trying to get out of leases on buildings) - it is less effective on the whole but £ talk…
Certainly less travel (by all modes) will be positive for the environment but i’m sure there are bean counters already trying to work out how to offset the reduction in hydrocarbon duty take from road fuel in the UK (57.95pence per litre plus VAT…is a lot of money!)
I’m not fussed on voting priorities…i’m more concerned that all parties ensure we fund services to correct levels and treat workers at all levels with respect!
Sorry - pessimist head on today
