The key to optimising energy is increasing visibility of energy use so that you can get accurate data. Then turning that data into actions. Take away the passion and the knowledge to transform your energy plans and achieve net zero earlier than you thought possible.

    Hybrid working in post-pandemic times can be said to have has bolstered mental health by granting employees more autonomy over their work schedules and at the same time, reducing the stress associated with unreliable commuting. Some would promote that flexibility fosters a better work-life balance, enhances job satisfaction, improves loyalty, and overall well-being. Conversely, there are others that would argue that the psychological damage caused by lone working, by working unstructured hours, and the physical harm of sitting for extensive periods fixated on the laptop screen can be detrimental to overall wellbeing. By getting the balance right, hybrid working is poised to acknowledge and accommodate the diverse needs of employees. The aim of today’s presentation is to explore the pros and cons of hybrid working and its impact on wellbeing in the modern world.
