Finding the balance
The work-life balance
The pandemic has changed the world in many ways. One of the benefits of lockdown has been a slower pace for many people. As Covid-19 spread across the globe and the whole world entered lockdown, the busy and hectic lives we had before slowed down. With no rush to commute to and from work and not many places to go, we all had no choice but to take a step back from the hustle and bustle of ‘normal’ life. While the pandemic has brought about many struggles, the slower pace was a blessing for many who led stressful lives.
The little things became the big things and ordinary tasks became extra important. With extra time many took more time out for themselves. Took up the hobbies they had thought about for years or started a form of self care. As the world begins to open up and some normality resumes, many people have vowed to keep some of their pandemic habits and rituals - as time for them.
At The View our mantra is Work Well. We believe that where and how you work has a direct impact on the quality of your work, and the quality of your life. We promote working close to home - to give time to the things that really matter.
Niamh McCarthy has similar beliefs, coming from a corporate background she has recently opened Shine In Yoga in Kinsealy. Niamh discovered the world of yoga and wellness a few years ago and has never looked back. Niamh has created an inviting studio that allows both beginner and experienced yogis to come together to practice. Shine In is about helping people to relax, take better care of themselves and to boost their health and well-being.
We are delighted to be partnering with Shine In this July to celebrate the work life balance we both support. To enter our competition to win a 5 Day Hot Desk Pass and a 4 Class Studio Credit Pack check out @theviewmalahide and @shine_in on Instagram.

Hybrid Working - Is hybrid the new Working Week?
The office environment has changed dramatically in the last eighteen months and some companies are now finding it quite a task to coax their employees back into the workplace as the restrictions ease this Autumn.
Some larger corporations have chosen to adopt a hybrid 3:2 working model, three days in the office and two at home or to allow those who are not keen on returning to the office to work off a 2:3 model; two days in the office with three days at home.
General feedback amongst staff shows that workers miss collaborating with their team and holding their face-to-face meetings. To accommodate this, there's another hybrid option, in which employees are only required to come into the office once a week on the same day as their team. The rest of the time, unless there is a meeting that requires in person, they’ll have the flexibility to work from home. Getting the balance right and keeping a team happy under the circumstances is key for most employers.
The View is a bright, airy working space with spectacular views and has proven to be a great incentive for enticing staff back into their workplace. We have recently added seven new offices to our building due to the demand for private offices and there are only two units currently available as they were snapped up from the plans; the new offices all have balcony access overlooking Malahide marina.
