Ecommerce & Digital Weekly - 25 July 2022

Tech Newsletter design for website (370 x 300 px)

As always, here's this week's ecommerce & digital newsletter.

What with the recent heat and train strikes it is clear that the flexibility of hybrid working is an essential element of the modern work-place rather than a subject of debate. I am now finding it difficult to remember a time when flexible working wasn't a standard part of any candidate's package.  

At the same time I have seen a few messages on social media expressing a new found glee at the productivity of everyone being in the same room.  

It will be interesting to see how this settles down after the summer hols.

The most difficult thing is the decision to act; the rest is merely tenacity.
