Boris Johnson advocating for a return to the office

07 October 2021

As part of his keynote speech at the Conservative party conference, the prime minister encouraged people to “get back to work in the normal way.”

Johnson made the statement that “we know that a productive workforce needs that spur that only comes from face-to-face meetings” mirroring past statements by Rishi Sunak that returning to the office is essential for young people to learn on the job.

The impetus to return to the office is likely aimed at reviving the highstreets that have been affected most by the move to working from home and lack of footfall.
