This is what our weekly staff meeting currently looks like: masks on, spread out, some here, some there. Immense flexibility has been required this year, and we are grateful to our clients and staff for accepting the challenge. We are excited to see more folks in the office more often and look forward to seeing you soon. Meetings with Bernardo Wills Architects can be held with social distance and masks, or on a virtual platform.
Get a quarantine buddy for daily check-ins. I exchanged a Microsoft Teams chat with one of my co-workers every morning during the initial stay-at-home order. It was a quick communication about how we were each feeling and what playlist we were listening to that day. Not only did we connect, but we also learned we had vastly different musical tastes!”
This month, we will be sharing a collection of Quaran-tips – tips from our staff that have helped them through the stay-at-home order and working from home. We will be sharing workflow tips, new technologies, homeschooling wins, and more. Our lifestyles will not be returning to normal for a while, and we are in this together. Our first tip is from Gregg Soares (and his daughter Hannah), “We lost power and Wi-Fi for 2 hours, so we went bumblebee hunting and identifying in the field near us. We may need to schedule more outages this summer to get everyone away from their screens!”
