What a week! Britain has been faced with the worst snow for 18 years, and its impact on the working world has been immense!
The economy has reportedly suffered losses of £3 billion thanks to the blizzards, as office numbers become depleted with masses of workers taking ‘snow days’.
While the rest of the country has been building snowmen, here at Allthetopbananas.com
we have finished building our new site and the redesign goes live today.We Brits generally feel hard done by, as we often get the brunt of the bad weather. Although our weather is never that great, this week’s vast snowstorms seem to have turned the country upside down. With not enough grit for the roads, transport heavily affected and shops and businesses like ghost towns, it is clear that we were caught largely unprepared for the white stuff.
It has been reported that over 6.4 million workers stayed at home around the country when the snow hit, which is a fifth of the national workforce! What you can’t help but wonder is how many of these people are actually truly incapacitated by the snow? The first sign of bad weather and we run straight for our duvets and then our phones, to let our bosses know that it is far too treacherous to come into the office. Cue mass snowball fights, updated Facebook statuses and tales of snowmen and sledging; but of course we can’t possibly brave the elements for work! Well snow or otherwise, we’ve been working hard and are reaping the reward of the bad weather.
This week saw our site have a record number of jobseekers and traffic to the site, proving that every snow cloud does have a silver lining.
So amidst the hot toddies, igloo building and snowman competitions; why not log onto ATTB and check out our new site with its great new look and features to help make job seeking hassle free. Who knows, you might even find a job on our site that you’ll want to brave the snow for!
