I work for a company that provides training for emergency telecommunicators aka dispatchers as well as develops the software for emergency communications.
Before the pandemic, we used to celebrate every tiny victory – the release of a new software or protocol, etc. – with food and drink. The picture above was from a gathering to celebrate the release of a new version of the emergency protocols for fire emergencies.
Nowadays, we no longer have this kind of parties. The pandemic had taken that away for probably everyone in the corporate world. I miss the days when the company summoned everyone down to a specific floor for sparkling drinks and surprise cupcakes and I certainly miss the days when the whole department went out to celebrate someone’s birthday with a lunch.
