In our regular series five minutes with, we catch up with parents and carers across our network to hear how they are adjusting to life working from home.  

Jon Pile, Managing Partner, Carat shares his tips and tricks for new daily routines.

What new processes or routine have you adopted whilst working from home and taking care of your child / children? 

Alternating mornings and afternoons with my wife so one of us is working and one is teaching / playing. Our school has been great, sending daily lesson plans but also offering reassurance that we shouldn’t worry about overburdening the kids and us with too much teaching. Returning a happy child to school whenever we can is more important than worrying about too much school work

What are you finding most surprising about your new routine? 

An afternoon of works feels like it goes by much quicker than a morning of teaching!

Do you have any tips or ideas for other parents or carers across dentsu to help with their daily routines? 

Create a plan for the day but don’t worry if it goes slightly awry!
