Publication of the digital magazine Infrastructure Intelligence of May / June
With the successful rollout of the vaccine in the UK, thoughts are turning to a return to workplaces across the country, according to Andy walker, in his last editor’s comment for the Infrastructure intelligence digital journal.
As the UK slowly but steadily emerges from lockdown, business thoughts will naturally turn to a return to workplaces and some sort of ‘normal’ work – regardless, after a year of pandemic crisis and Covid which still rages in many parts of the world.
What is clear amid all the uncertainty is that business in the construction industry – and many other industries as well – will not go back to where it was before. Businesses and their staff have become accustomed to online meetings and flexible working and many want more, especially since in most cases there hasn’t been a drop in the productivity of people working from home. or remotely.
Like many of our Infrastructure intelligence webinars have shown it, cities and our transportation systems will change because of Covid – and many of these changes will be for the better and will dramatically improve the health and well-being, especially the mental health, of our people. citizens. As our center page highlights by Jamie Gordon of BECG, digital engagement and working practices are here to stay.
This evolution towards a way of working more respectful of well-being is particularly appropriate in the run-up to Mental Health Awareness Week from May 10 to 16, 2021. After a difficult and repetitive year of pandemic containment and working from home , the week offers everyone working in construction a great opportunity to interact with colleagues and the world around them.
Stay safe, stay connected and I hope you enjoy this issue of the magazine.
