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.
