If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps fund the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.
I like my tennis and played at my pretty upmarket club in Surrey yesterday. It was packed. I mean heaving. Hardly a car parking place yet alone a court free.
How could that be on a greyish autumn day in October? The answer is WFH or “flexible working” as the experts prefer to call it. A huge number of people are now available during the day to go to the gym, to the tennis club or simply potter round to friends for a coffee all without the boss or workmates knowing.
And from my experience it’s the CEOs and CFOs who are leading the charge. After all they have the bigger houses to enjoy plus in this last 18 months they would have discovered for the first time in 20 years they have families. And they enjoy spending time with them.
This is my bet. Productivity will collapse. It is true certain tasks can be completed anywhere but the tension and competition of work in an office is what keeps people on their toes.

So I don’t agree with Brewin Dolphin, one of Britain’s biggest wealth managers, scrapping plans to move into a new head office in the heart of the City of London because of a big jump in WFH.
The relocation was going to cost Brewin £10million although it has not said what the cost of aborting the move will be.
My bet is that in two years time, when covid is a painful memory, bosses will wake up to the fact that money they are saving on rents will be less than the money they are losing on deals failing or legal clangers happening because the company is not focussed on business but making sure a tennis court is free for a game with me.
