Annabel has been working from home since March 2020. Truly extraordinary how a news report about a virus in China suddenly gets so much impact, when Prime Minister Rutte, Minister de Jonge and sign language interpreter Irma advise the Dutch to work from home if they can. Annabel did have an extra room where she would occasionally work from home. Because she lives near the office, she rarely used it. How that has changed.
Slowly, her home office became more professional. Once she brought a laptop stand and a monitor from the office. When it looked like working from home would become the norm, even after corona passed, Annabel bought a sit-stand desk and an office chair. Fortunately, she was allowed to claim these items!
Three weeks ago, Annabel received a call from a former colleague. They were looking for a Marketing Manager at his company. It can't hurt to talk, right? It turned out to be a wonderful challenge that she really couldn't refuse. Last Friday, Annabel quit her current job. With pain in her heart, because she will miss her wonderful colleagues.
