After the year that we’ve had it’s hard to find some positives but we’re all about silver linings and finding reasons to be cheerful – so here are our highlights to cherish from the year that wasn’t!

  • Since the pandemic some 60% of UK adults are now working from home and many expect this to continue. Although this can have its issues, the majority of workers say that they are happy with this arrangement some or all of the time.
  • Nearly all of our clients are looking towards 2021 with a more flexible attitude and many are saying that they will continue with some kind of hybrid working arrangement with their employees.
  • The furlough scheme has highlighted that part-time workers are productive workers and many businesses are now thinking about part-time as part of their hiring and resourcing plans.
  • Ten2Two partnered with Colt Technology to deliver a successful Returnship programme, placing more than double the planned intake for 2020, and we’re looking forward to delivering similar programmes in 2021.
  • Our member base of high-calibre professionals has increased over the year reflecting the increased demand for a work/life balance.
  • We’ve worked with nearly a thousand new businesses across the South of England who are embracing the benefits of part-time and flexible working.
  • We’ve introduced hundreds of fabulous Ten2Two candidates to businesses and found many their dream jobs.
  • We’re proud to have supported our chosen charities throughout the year – The Hospice of St Francis and DENs and being active members of the Connect Dacorum Community.
  • We’ve moved our member support online with regular blogs and webinars including Introduction to the world of Social Media, Parenting in Lockdown and Video Interviewing Skills.
  • We’ve also moved our client support online with regular blogs and hints and tips such as How to Video interview, How to Lead a Remote team and Resurfacing Strategies post Covid.
  • Market stats show that the number of job adverts in the UK rose to a new high in the first week of December. This gives us renewed confidence that the jobs market will bounce back in 2021, despite the continuing threat of COVID-19. News that the vaccine rollout has begun should also boost positivity amongst us all.

And on that note, we would like to wish you a happy, relaxing Christmas and here’s to a silver lined 2021!
