f there’s one thing this eternal pandemic has taught us it’s that we really don’t need to sit in traffic for three hours every day for our job.
In most cases, the work we had been doing in an office at the other end of the N11 could be done just as easily from home.
More importantly, our work could be done a heck of a lot breezier from home.
Not that everyone wants to spend the rest of their lives commuting up and down the stairs each day whilst trying to avoid contact with – and distractions from – our very nearest and sometimes dearest.
Which would explain the boom in remote working facilities such as Newtown’s Wicklow Hub. Run by Paul Jacob – the brains behind Smart Storage – this impressive home office away from home comes complete with a garden roof boasting a BBQ, a pitch & putt, and plenty of space to give each other some real space.
Sure, is it any wonder then that Wicklow Hub is up for a swanky award…
“We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted for Business Hub Of The Year,” young Jacob tells the Guide. “From the start, we have strived to provide a professional, safe environment for all our members. And over the past year, we’ve witnessed more and more people wanting to break free of their home office whilst also realising that they can longer do that daily 3-hour commute.
“The response to Wicklow Hub has been overwhelming. And we want to thank everyone for helping us achieve this prestigious nomination by giving away 10 free passes – a prize worth over €300.
“All people have to do,” says Paul, “is tell us in the comments below who will benefit the most from you not working at home…”
