The office environment is what we miss the most amidst all the pandemic changes. It is a second home for any office going person as they spend the maximum time of their day in offices. Starting the day with getting packed into tiny elevators, the hustle and bustle on the computers, adjusting in our box cabins, office politics, exchanging tiffin with colleagues during lunch hours, urgent meetings, and last winding up at the ticking of the clock when it is time to go home.

The Covid-19 brought an end to our old office lives and we ushered in a new age of public health awareness, sanitation and socialdistancing at work. Remote working is the new normal and it is here to stay for a long time even after Covid-19 is gone. The employees are getting acquainted with the new culture. Just to be as a team and have the same feeling of togetherness of working towards the same goal, the companies should celebrate small or big milestones of their employees, especially birthdays.
