Coronavirus: Are Your Staff Able To Work From Home?
Coronavirus is the main topic of conversation on every news outlet, across social media and in all the papers. Even the latest James Bond release date has been affected. Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ll know it’s something that is affecting businesses across the UK, with the full extent of consequences and longevity unknown.
Current NHS guidelines say if you have been to one of the worst affected countries or come into contact with some with Coronavirus, you should self isolate for 14 days. However, as more people become exposed more and more of us will have to self-isolate.
Affect On Business
Governments across the world are making plans to protect against the inevitable economic damage. Even now, businesses have sent their entire workforce home due to a worker who has shown symptoms. So how can you protect your business?
Working From Home
A way to protect your business could be making the provisions for your employees to work from home.
Making sure your employees have the right equipment, secure internet connection, dedicated phone lines are often required for remote working, as well as secure access to the right programs and files.
