None of us could have predicted the impact COVID-19 would have on every area of our lives.

COVID-19 forced many of our organisations to change our working practices in a very short space of time and introduce new ways of working so we could continue to deliver services as effectively and safely as possible. Within days of the first lockdown being announced, many of our staff within the sector had transitioned to remote working. 

While the pandemic has presented us with significant challenges, it has also presented us with opportunities and we have seen an unprecedented shift in how many of us work with many services now being delivered remotely. It is important that we learn from what is working well and what is not and pave a way forward with a more flexible approach.

As restrictions begin to ease you may be thinking about returning to your workplace even on a part time basis.  Join us for a conversation on how we might develop our approaches to blended working.  We will highlight the latest advice on working safely in our place of work as well as highlighting the key considerations employers should give to a blended approach between home working and the office.
