Changing of the Times

For the UK and most of the Southern Hemisphere it is almost time for the clocks to change (the US changed on March 8th), the sun is setting later and spring is in the air. While you may lose an hour in bed, you get the reward of longer evenings, and hopefully better weather.

What this means for work is making sure that all your clocks are adjusted, that it doesn?t cause any problems with your online calendars, your conference call schedule or your meeting times. It?s also worth making sure that the calendar change doesn?t cause any issues for clients or co-workers, whether this is caused by confusion or a difference in time zones.

For clarification, North/Central America and the Caribbean put their clocks back on March 8th, while the UK and rest of Europe changes on 29th. That?s this weekend for those in doubt.

Lastly for those countries in the Southern Hemisphere, the clocks go back on April 5th. So make note and remember to change or check those clocks!
