It wasn’t me but they did submit it. I think it’s likely deemed as not essential to working from home and something a company should bare the cost of rather than the government. I agree.
I just did the flat £6 a week which went through fine. I can’t imagine the electricity cost me anything more than an extra £2 or so and for some of lockdown my better half was stuck abroad so I was saving energy too!
Personally I have been enjoying WFH.
I’ve got my gaming setup tailored to everything I need which I also use for work now.
I find it easier to focus on complex tasks as haven’t got people in the office interrupting me anymore.
However, I do miss seeing my colleagues, the general banter around the office, and the after work events!
“Holograms could be the second coming of Zoom… and companies could pay big bucks for them. WeWork is already charging $2.5K for holograms to be displayed on one standard HoloPod. Holograms could offer the best of both worlds in a hybrid future: the flexibility to WFH, paired with the bonding benefits of an in-office experience.”
Yeah, I selected Monday, but I quite like the alternating day’s idea as you’ve said - would break the week up quite nicely! I guess really it should be based around what type of work you have to do on what days - and where you’re likely to do that work the best?

I find that meetings that I would need to attend in person normally fall on a Tuesday or Wednesday, although there be more virtual options in the future. Also, people travelling between offices tend to visit on those days. They are also the busiest in the office and on my commute.
My ideal would be Monday, Thursday and Friday at home to suit this. My greengrocers only delivers on a Friday and they would work best for me going to watch football in terms of being able to wake up later the next day and still start at the same time with no commute.
It depends on the part of the business you work in but I will basically just need to agree it with my manager. Pre pandemic people could work at home 1 day a week, which you just needed to check with your manager. You could do it on different days each week.
Now the policy is being as flexible as possible whilst suiting the business need. For example, those doing a late shift will be able to do it from home because of concerns about public transport and safety.
