The superhero parent

The superhero parent

For many parents, hybrid working has resulted in less late pick up fees from the nursery, but it also means parents are working at all hours of the day.

These parents also spend most remote meetings on mute with one eye on the door to prevent their video call from being screen-bombed by their little tykes. Observing the juggle has given child-free colleagues serious food for thought.

The webcam refusenik

The webcam refusenik

In the before times, this person was a consummate presentation giver, but they haven't taken to the virtual world quite well.

It could be the unforgiving camera angles, the demoralising exhaustion of back-to-back calls, but the moment the green light on their webcam flickers, they switch it off and fade into the black.

The office evangelist

The office evangelist

When the lockdowns reached their zenith during 2020-21, this cubicle-championing colleague was missing the workplace.

Now, as work has gone hybrid, they’re back in the office five days a week, bounding from desk to desk, bemoaning homeworking as detrimental to “office culture”.

They see the office as a second home. Put a futon by their computer, and they’d sleep there if they could.

The teleworking technophobe

After two years of the pandemic, the teleworking technophobe is still struggling with its tech.

During virtual meetings, the group chat, technophobes are still unable to locate the chat tab. Their face fills the entire screen and at last year's annual general meeting, they became a meme after getting stuck in a video filter that made them look like a talking pizza.

The smug stay-at-homer

The smug stay-at-homer hopes they won't have to return to the office, even if only for two days a week. Not commuting has saved them so much money.

No amount of free coffee or away days to the local abseiling centre will ever lure them back.

Team Tuesdays to Thursdays

Team Tuesdays to Thursdays

These colleagues think they’ve got hybrid office life hacked.

They now work a 3:2 timetable and ensure their mandatory three days in the office span from Tuesdays to Thursdays. No more blue Monday commutes or long Friday afternoons.

The bewildered first-jobbers

They entered the world of work during the lockdown, and it was months before they saw any of their colleagues in person.

Now that they're in the office for the first time, it's a shock to the system. Since then, they’ve drifted aimlessly around the workspace, wondering why some people actively choose to sardine themselves into public transport for two hours, only to spend the day making copious hot drinks.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
