Philip Wilson – Ltd Co

What does your morning routine look like now? Earlier start and very short commute

Where is your home office? At home! Bespoke office/study in place already

What’s on the menu for lunch? Same as at work – sandwich or soup

What work are you currently involved in? Geotechnical reports for Telford Council

Best bit about remote working? Joggy bottoms and no suit and not living in hotel

Worst bit about remote working? No direct contact with colleagues, apart from via internet

What keeps you happy or motivated whilst working at home? Motivation under lockdown is no different for me than normal. I am sure you are aware of Maslow Hierarchy of needs as Motivational Theory

Being able to work under lockdown satisfies the lower basic 3 tiers of food, security etc and the nature of my work provides professional satisfaction, so I would say that I am at level 4 (Esteem – Appreciation and Respect)  under both lockdown and “normal” working life!

The converse of not being able to work under lockdown would likely have me struggling at Level 1!  I feel fortunate given that BBC News reported 2M unemployed under lockdown and claiming DWP benefits.

What do you do for your one bit of exercise each day? Daily walk for 30 to 60 mins – including uphill route if feeling up to it in the Welsh Hills

What is the first place you will go when lockdown is over? The pub! And the gym.
