Our strategy is to put people at the centre of everything we do. We have designed a guide to help employees achieve the right balance between working in the office and working from home, while serving the needs of our clients and the firm. It is likely that most of us will spend around 50% of their time in the office and 50% working from home  However we appreciate arrangements may vary from role to role. This approach encourages office time focused on training, supervision, collaboration and innovation, and those tasks that require individual focus to be completed while working at home.
