Diary: A Plus gives new meaning to the phrase ’taking your work home with you’

A Plus staff faced a Monday morning nightmare last week when they arrived at their Slough office to find the roof gone and the floor flooded.

A Plus staff faced a Monday morning nightmare last week when they

arrived at their Slough office to find the roof gone and the floor

flooded.



The air conditioning unit had fallen through the roof, producing a

meltdown of computer systems.



However, the Dunkirk spirit prevailed as staff decamped to work from

home. Laptops and mobile lines meant work could go on almost as

usual.



The hi-tech agency’s new media team of seven, led by Andrew Smith, coped

particularly well while the office dried out. Smith says: ’It proved a

useful exercise, we showed that the virtual office can work. Obviously

we’ve set a precedent.’



Smith is right to think this. One A Plus director tells me that a move

to a series of ’virtual offices, that is account executives’ living

rooms, could save the agency some serious money.
