LOCKDOWN v2.0 – THE SEQUEL
Whilst plenty of research is readily available, you only have to compare lockdowns with friends or family to realise that many who found the first one comparatively easy have struggled with the second. Obviously, we now have colder, wetter weather and this makes it harder to find motivation to go outside and take exercise when you wake up and finish your working day in darkness. There is also the cumulative impact of months and months of dealing with the pandemic, worrying about family plans for Christmas, reduced work team interactions, Brexit and a host of other personal and employment issues.

ANOTHER YEAR OF EBULLETINS
It is exactly 11 years since we published our first eBulletin. Over that period, we have discussed, explored and, on occasions, even predicted changes to how and where we work. 2020 has obviously seen more rapid and dramatic changes than ever before and, with a vaccine imminent, we can start to think about the hybrid workplace that many of us will experience in the future.
You can see our Webinar plans for early 2021 here.
YEAR END SHUTDOWN
This year, we close at 12:30pm on Thursday December 24th, 2020 and reopen at 8:30am on Monday January 4th, 2021. The last order date for pre-Christmas despatch of stock items is Monday December 21st.
Courier capacities are likely to be more stretched this year than ever before so we would strongly recommend ordering the previous week for pre-Christmas delivery of bulkier items such as chairs and desks.
On the subject of chairs and desks, the HomeFit ‘sit-stand desk in a cupboard’ is fulfilling its promise as a clever concept that is very well executed. Initial UK stocks sold out immediately so we have secured the only remaining UK stock available before the year end.
We are also offering an extra £25 off our already-discounted price. Just use code HF-ERGO at checkout on our website or contact the Customer Service team and quote this eBulletin. This offer will only be valid for 2020 orders.
Yes, I know we had all nearly forgotten about this amidst the pandemic mayhem. Like the pandemic, it is quite hard to predict what will happen next. At the time of writing, no deal seems the likely outcome and, on that assumption, we have made all the provisions we can to ensure continued product supply.
If you have any upcoming projects or expect changes in your usual buying patterns in the near future, please let us know promptly.
It has always been our belief that we can only be excellent at a limited number of activities and, for everything else, we simply find and collaborate with partners who are at the peak of their profession.
This enables us to offer a more holistic service and gives our clients quick and easy access to proven specialists to meet all their workplace (including homeworking) needs. In the past, this has been a rather ad hoc process but you can now find our key Partnership Services on this page.
