Scottish chartered accountancy firm Wylie and Bisset is returning to the office under a new hybrid working model.
It said the office will be a safe air-purified environment, and the firm will offer a new working pattern “to support the opportunity for better work-life balance”.
The firm will not return to an office-based five day/week working pattern, instead offering staff a hybrid working model allowing flexibility to staff members old and new.
Ahead of its reopening, Wylie and Bisset became the first office in Glasgow to install aura air purification technology, to ensure a safe return to work for its staff.
Donald McKinnon, managing partner, said: “The last year has seen us all working remotely, learning new technology to work effectively. But while we’ve become skilled at remote working, we’ve missed the social interaction and the routine of office life so we are delighted to welcome staff back to the office.
“We wish to support a healthy, happy and socially interactive environment going forward and believe this produces a positive culture for staff and clients.”
He added: “We are already seeing the benefits of a cleaner working environment and if we can reduce annual seasonal sickness days through installing these air purification technologies, that has to be a good thing for all concerned.”
