DUBLIN, July 13 (Reuters/myFWL Post) – All over the world, the coronavirus pandemic induced working from home has made many people re-discover a part of their culture. Working from home, or observing a furlough, some like Michelle Brenner are discovering their passion beyond work.
I have not heard of any one ordering frozen Irish stew like they did frozen lasagna. Maybe an idea for an Irish employee. One among many that wants to continue working from home can try out a new trick with any of the traditional dishes.
Over 80% of Irish employees want to continue to spend at least part of their week working from home when normal life resumes after the coronavirus pandemic, a survey found on Monday.
What traditional dish taste as good as working from home?
Working from home taste like a meal of colcannon served with an Irish stew made with mutton. A mix of boxty, coddle and colcannon while employees work from home wouldn’t get anyone to look like this model of future remote workers. It is therefore extremely important that what ever rules applies, wellbeing and wellness should continue to take priority.
Like much of Europe, most Irish workers were forced to work from home when the economy went into lockdown in March . The government’s advice remains for people to do so, where they can, as it prepares to lift the last of the restrictions.

When asked what their ideal working arrangement would be when normal life resumes, the highest preference – 24% – was to work 2-3 days a week from home, according to the AIB/Amárach Research survey of over 1,000 adults carried out over the last four weeks.
Another 20% said they would like to work 1-2 days a week at home and the rest in the office, with the same level expressing a preference to work 3-4 days a week from home and 14% saying they would go to the office during the week only if needed.
That left just 15% preferring to go back to the office the way it was before.
Ireland’s new government has pledged to bring in measures to permanently increase remote working – including potential tax incentives – in a bid to promote better work life balance, higher female participation, greater regional balance and address climate change via less commuting.
Time will tell, if the Department of Transport policy that had been in place since January 2015 will be amended.
