Covid-19 and the recent lockdown have dramatically changed the way we work. Most businesses would have had their staff working remotely or had to furlough them. It's likely your business looks remarkably different then it did at the start of 2020.
We have all been living with the Covid-19 pandemic for a while now. For most of us, it has meant working remotely for months. As the Government begins to loosen the restrictions around the pandemic businesses are thinking about returning to the office.
For many UK businesses working from home is quickly becoming the new normal. Since advice from the UK Government back in March over 50 per cent of UK workers have been working from home.
