Will estate agency return to normal when lockdown lifts?

first_imgHome » News » COVID-19 news » Will estate agency return to normal when lockdown lifts? previous nextAgencies & PeopleWill estate agency return to normal when lockdown lifts?That’s the question that leading industry recruiter Josh Rayner is asking estate agency staff to answer in a new industry poll taking place this week. Have your say!Nigel Lewis20th April 20201 Comment2,489 Views As most of the estimated 150,000 people who work in the estate agency sector are either furloughed or told to work from home, many are wondering if these employees will, when the crisis is over, resist attempts to return full time to their branches.Leading estate agency recruiter Josh Rayner wants to know if industry rank and file believe the industry will return to normality once the all clear is given and whether they see it as an opportunity to change direction.Many negotiators and other branch staff will be wondering if, as their employer was able to continue doing business without a branch, perhaps the daily commute into work isn’t necessary.“How many of those currently furloughed or laid off intend to simply exit agency altogether,” asks Rayner (left), who founded Rayner Personnel in 2012.“Has this experience changed your view of what a work/life balance looks like and indeed should look like?“Coronavirus has challenged our thinking, the way we have had to work of late and has challenged our very industry’s very viability.“It’s important as we pass through our fourth week of lockdown to ascertain the thoughts and the sentiment of those that form the foundations of the property sector itself.”To find out, Rayner is asking agents to fill in a short poll that takes two minutes to complete and will be open until next weekend. The results will be published soon afterwards.Complete the poll.Read more about Rayner Personnel.Josh Rayner Rayner Personnel working from home agile working April 20, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 21st April 2020 at 3:19 pmJosh Rayner is a bright lad, and what may be seen as a pedestrian attempt to find out what is happening inside the heads of agents, is in fact exactly what is needed. As the blueprint of work and business is changing forever.Take ABF, who? Associated British Foods, who? the owners of ‘Primark’ that has just take a nearly 300M haircut, why? Because since lockdown, only a month ago, it has generated zero income, because it does not sell online. I foresee many in the c-suite having some explaining to do.Everyone thinks this lack of business foresight is crazy, but not as crazy as the real estate industry thinking that post-covid the consumer will be ‘doing business’ in the same way. And a re-vamp of an agency website is not what I am alluding to.Customers/clients in any industry want service, in real estate the largest asset base in the world, paper needs to give way to a more immediate and meaningful way of transacting business. Just as Primark was caught out – a face to face shopping experience in a pandemic, real estate also is about to hit the same impasse, and maybe this is why the workforce in the industry really needs to be consulted about what it thinks.

Advocacy groups file amicus in support of marijuana for medical use

first_imgCivil society groups have filed an amicus brief –  offered by someone who is not party to a case – in favor of the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes, to support Reyndhart Siahaan, who was arrested for allegedly using marijuana as alternative medication.The brief was drafted by the Institute for Criminal Justice Reform (ICJR), the Research and Advocacy Institute of Court Independence (LeIP), Indonesian Judicial Research Society (IJRS) and the Community Legal Aid Institute (LBH Masyarakat).It was submitted to the Kupang District Court in East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), where Reyndhart is standing trial. The 37-year-old man from East Jakarta was arrested in November last year for allegedly using marijuana at his rooming house in Manggarai Barat regency. He is accused of violating Article 127 of the 1999 Narcotics Law, which carries a maximum sentence of one-year imprisonment.Reynhardt’s legal team claimed its client had used marijuana as alternative medication to treat spinal cord compression. He reportedly found that drinking boiled cannabis water could help ease the pain.Read also: Activists, civil groups call for decriminalizing marijuana for medical useIn the amicus brief, the groups urged the court to consider Reyndhart’s medical history, saying that the use of marijuana to ease recurring pain should not be criminalized. “Judges at the Kupang District Court should not merely be a mouthpiece for the law upon making a decision in this case, as judges are a reflection of justice,” the group wrote in a statement on Monday.“The Constitution is the highest form of law in the country; thus, Reyndhart’s need for medication should be provided by the state. Therefore, judges should be able to explore the value of justice in this case, as there is no need to convict people fighting with illness.”The groups further argued the Reyndhart’s case could be categorized as an emergency as he was treating an illness. Article 48 of the Criminal Code stipulates a restriction on charging people who commit a criminal offense in an emergency.Read also: 420 blaze it? Here’s what you need to know about Indonesia’s marijuana lawMarijuana is categorized as type-1 narcotics in the Narcotics Law, along with cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines. Authorities only allow the use of such narcotics for scientific research, while the misuse of such drugs can result in up to four years behind bars or rehabilitation.The group also highlighted that at least 50 countries had approved marijuana for alternative medication, with the substance commonly used to ease neurogenic pain.“As we support legal reform regarding narcotics and respect for human rights, we hope the judges can bring justice for Reyndhart,” the group wrote.Topics :last_img read more
