Kerryn's labradors are an integral part of the Team providing light
relief and occasional stress busting services! (you really, really need
my very stinky soft toy!!, I'm desperate to go out and I think you need
some fresh air too...) Keep up with them on instagram here. Since we converted to mainly remote working Katie and Amy's dogs have become office dogs too! News of the office dogs is tagged on the blog as Office Dogs.
Since the Covid-19 lockdown everyone has been working from home, which we're finding works really well for us, allowing us the flexibility to manage other responsibilities outside of the office. We've altered the 'official' office hours to 10-4 but we work hours to suit: Kerryn's often at work early and taking a long break in the middle for dog walkin, Katie and Amy frequently prefer to finish things in the evenings.We'll see how things progress but we think the days of the CJS office may be numbered as anything other than a remote hub and hosting the central CJS server and network.
