Following specific guidance issued by the government, many businesses are now encouraging their employees to work from home where possible*. This particular piece of advice is becoming increasingly vital for employers to follow, as the COVID-19 outbreak increases across the UK.

Amidst the escalation of events related to COVID-19, it is essential that businesses are agile and implement an effective work-from-home policy sooner rather than later.

Whilst 68% of UK businesses reported that they have a flexible workspace policy, many colleagues will be working from home for the first time in the coming weeks2.

Therefore, it is important that guidance issued is both comprehensive and reassuring.

We advise that businesses put their employee’s safety first in these challenging times, and recommend that staff work from home where possible in order to achieve this. Marsh Commercial, who are also part of the Marsh family, have created an employee work from home guide that covers everything from the basics to the finer details around working from home, allowing employees to optimise their productivity whilst getting used to this new dynamic.
