Research Departments Physiology 20210323 Out of the Lunchbox
26 March 2021

It was March 2020 when the first measures against the spread of the coronavirus were announced and the so-called intelligent lockdown started. A year later, still strict measures are in place and the urgent advice to work at home remains. The impact of a year in the spotlight of the coronavirus has also left its mark within the Department of Physiology.

This Out of the Lunchbox was organized by Joost, Jenny and Charlotte and was used to exchange views on working from home together. What are the positive aspects of working from home? What do you miss most about the pre-coronavirus times? And also, what do you need to work from home?

The participants were divided into Break Out Rooms to share their thoughts on the mentioned aspects of working from home. Many topics were mentioned such as the lack of time to travel to and from work, the high degree of flexibility, less risk of infection and better focus. But also the lack of colleagues, the humor in the workplace, the start-up and closing moments at the department as well as the Aesculaaf. Finally, a number of concrete suggestions were made to stay in touch in the coming months. Participating in Out of the Lunchbox will certainly help with that.
