We have seen Accountants are spending more and more time with colleagues.
Whilst plenty of Accountants are keen to stay at home 5 days a week, there are many that want to break up home working with 1-2 days in the office. Employers that do have people in the office are generally offering a distanced or reduced capacity environment.
The Accountants we speak to that are going into the office are not feeling at risk but actually enjoying the change of scene!
