Gekko Profiles Laura
When lockdown began our head office team made the move from our office in Newbury to their kitchen tables and spare room desks.
Their homes became makeshift offices and their family members and pets were honorary Gekko Team members.
Back in March when lockdown began, our head office team made the move from our office in Newbury to working from home.
Transitioning homes to makeshift offices, family members and pets immediately became honorary Gekko Team members.
Working from home has its perks but can be challenging juggling a busy family home while liaising with retailers about back to work plans or holding video calls with clients. This is what Laura Bergin our Tactical Client Services Director, found over the last few months.
“It was important to me to maintain relationships with our clients during lockdown so they knew we were here to support them. As well as keeping in contact, we produced a weekly newsletter which was key in keeping our clients updated and helped to maintain confidence our clients have in us, especially during this uncertain time.
As a team we kept in regular contact while working from home via video calls and weekly quizzes with guest appearances from my family. These calls kept energy high and the team motivated but also allowed us to check in and ensure everyone was ok, offering support if needed.
As with every situation you adapt and with every challenge comes an opportunity, I feel that as a team, keeping positive and using our skills to be innovative allowed us to successfully navigate the situation and get through it together.”
