Back to Work
September is Back to Work month! Your Hawaiian holiday seems like a distance memory now, the summer is drawing to a close and it's time to get back in the office! But don't get too down about those post holiday blues. Frederick Thomas London are here to help with our Back to Work Top Tips, ensuring you're refreshed and ready for the new business year!

Frederick Thomas Top Tips

Stay organised

Staying organised is a big part of going back to the office. Reminding yourself of where you left off with your work, and packing your bag/lunch the night before are small acts but will really make a big difference. It will give you ease of mind, so Monday morning isn't such a stress.

Focus on what you love

Remind yourself of why you love your job! Write them down, make a list, and ask your boss if you can do more of it! Your boss wants you to succeed and do well, so don't be nervous about asking. You'll always succeed at doing a job you love.

Transform your work space

Just because your e-mail inbox is piled high with rubbish doesn't mean your desk has to be! Clean you desk space and turn it into a haven of calm, add a small house plant or purchase a new notebook. A clean and clutter free desk will help you to stay calm and collected.

Get back in contact with your work mates

Send your work mates a text! You might not have spoken to them for a couple of months now, but sending them a quick message asking them about their holiday will start off the conversation nicely. You can then both chat about how stressed you are about going back to work, a problem shared is a problem halved!

Refresh your wardrobe

Dress for the job you want, not the job you have! Refresh your wardrobe with some Frederick Thomas London accessories. You don't have to buy a whole new suit to ensure a new look, a couple of new ties and cufflinks will do the trick nicely. Check out our Blog on Ties to Start a Conversation for inspiration!

Don't put off the bad jobs

No one like replying to complaints e-mails but they've got to done unfortunately. Tackling the bad jobs at the start of your working day/week will allow you peace of mind. Having them looming over you while you work is never ideal.

Why not get organised now and start browsing for your new work wardrobe! Visit and start shopping now!

From all of us at Frederick Thomas London, thank you for reading and see you next week.
