Technical issues working from home
The number of tech issues seemed to increase as more and more people worked from home. There were all kinds of issues like connection to the ANZ network, phone issues and broken keyboards - I never thought I’d hear the words ‘the dog ate my keyboard’ but it happened!
Issues connecting to the network were challenging. If the helpdesk wasn’t able to fix the problem remotely, the staff member had to obtain a permit to come into the office.
As more people return to the office, I’m most excited about seeing my team in real life. We have our virtual meetings every week but I’ve really missed being able to tap someone on the shoulder or yell out if you need help and vice versa.
I’ve also really missed seeing familiar faces over the past year – you build relationships with people when they visit the Tech Bar - although I bet they hope they don’t need to visit too often. This is something I’m really looking forward to in the coming months.
