With the ‘new normal’ of working remotely, there tends to be a blur between regular office hours and the weekends.
Once upon a time, there was a clear and distinct timing, environment and dress code for work, which made the weekends feel very different.
But working at weekends is a norm for some professionals in fields like entertainment, hospitality, travel, broadcasting, telecoms, sports and indeed so many more.
Some people actually work at weekends to earn some extra income, horn their skills in other areas of interest, complete deadlines from regular weekday work and for so many more reasons.
As life eases back to some form of normalcy round the world, it just may be time to get busy at weekends once more!
