Managing working from home
During COVID-19, employers should be flexible, sensitive and pragmatic when arranging for staff to work from home.
Coronavirus has forced many businesses into making significant changes to their usual working practices. One such change is to close workplaces and have employees doing their jobs from home instead (known as remote working).
Adapting to such significant change has implications for employers and their staff. There are issues to deal with relating to communication, health and safety, productivity, work-life balance and effective management, to name a few.
This guide looks at some of the main concerns around working from home and what businesses can do to help their employees work to the best of their ability when away from the workplace.
