UK Economy Bounces Back
Well it was the signs that we were looking for and for sure the UK Economy is bouncing back.
The analysts out there that predicted a V Shape recovery was right and like any great nation with a challenge we persisted in delivering business products and services.
The GDP Figures out today 12th November show that so many of the sectors had a V Shaped recovery in the index and this although a LAG measure was something people were expecting.
Even though the commuting crowds halted in the early March, the figures from the transport traffic indicates people and businesses are on the move again.
Whilst the media and government focus was on an arbitrary R value the rest of the country and businesses were just getting on with what could be done at the time.
The main impact from initial lockdown was the prospect of home schooling and working at the same time which forced a grounding affect on households.
With the National institutes of Health and Education playing a vital role in the recovery process we can all take lessons and acknowledge what an important role they play in society.
Now with the key focus geared towards the silver bullet solution of vaccination and how quickly and safely the pharmaceutical industry can delivery we could be thinking all of this will soon be behind us.
Companies business as usual
With so many companies changing the way they operate to deal with the pandemic constraints, will the new ways in which we operate become the norm?
The emphasis on “Social Distancing” has been driven from a state of fear but how much will that affect businesses in the long run when people interactions are replaced with digital interactions.
Obviously, technology has helped drastically overcome the constraints and burdens of operating in these times but the sense of normality in which we need to interact with people face to face still needs to happen.
The analysis focus on businesses operating in the new ways must include a measure on employees mental health and ensure we get the balance right for future.
The positive affect of missing commuter stresses has to be balanced with the work from home “Cabin fever” mentality that has burdened so many.
