Working from home post COVID-19 lockdown | Part 1

Many people will still be working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This may present new risks and challenges that businesses will need to manage.


There remains an obligation for businesses to continue to look after their employees, take a realistic approach and act in good faith at all times. Ideas to help employees working from home include: - Encourage them to get up and move around during the day - Suggest propping their laptop on a high bench from time to time as a standing desk. - Remind them to get out in the fresh air at least once a day for some local exercise. - Keep communicating so employees don’t feel out of the loop - Acknowledge that working from home with children or other distractions may not be as productive at times, and that family comes first.

Remember to be kind, compassionate (particularly to those not coping as well as you), patient and open to discussing different options for working in the new ‘normal’ going forwards.
