With the majority of Irish adults now fully vaccinated attention is turning to the full restoration of public services, leisure activities and, of course, the return to the office. However, as the past year-and-a-half have shown, there is little appetitite to return to ‘business as usual’ to the extent that we now have a generation of workers keen to put quality of life over salary as a defining feature of their next job.
