With the COVID-19 coronavirus disrupting daily life in the UK as we know it, many businesses are preparing to manage employees working from home. But how can businesses rapidly and effectively adapt to working from home without losing productivity in the process?
We recently ran a webinar (the first in our series of topical webinars for SMEs) to help business owner-managers and HR staff navigate remote working in these exceptional circumstances. Attendees had the opportunity to get their questions around coronavirus and staff working from home answered.
