Helping business prepare for the future of work post COVID-19

The workplace is going to look very different now most restrictions have been lifted, for many reasons.

Make sure your business is prepared for the challenges and opportunities that will face us all, with:

  • New policies on distancing, vaccinations and hygiene regimes.
  • Flexible and hybrid working policies.
  • Additional benefits for employees.

We’ve assembled this resource hub to give you all the latest information, advice and guidance on working from home and the future of working.

Our future of work guides & fixed fee products

Did you know that it is possible to offer employees an interest-free home workspace loan?

Having an appropriate, fit-for-purpose workspace is vital for employees to work efficiently and effectively while also looking after their mental health and wellbeing.

As an employer, you can now offer your staff an interest-free home workspace loan to ensure that they have a suitable environment in which to work from home.

Whether the loan is used to construct a garden office, refurbish an existing office or buy new furniture – this can now be a benefit you can offer as an employer.

For a fixed fee, our team of consumer credit experts work with you to set up a home workspace loan benefit for your employees quickly and efficiently.

Review your flexible & hybrid working policies

Many employees continue to work remotely, therefore employers may be considering a flexible working policy or a hybrid working policy.

If this is the case for your business, you will need to ensure that all your policies and procedures are up to date and fit for purpose.

Our team will work with your business to make sure that you are ready for a return to work, whatever model works for your business.

Vaccination policy drafting service

Can employers require employees to be vaccinated in the UK?

As the pandemic and resulting vaccine rollout continue, organisations are facing challenges such as should vaccines be compulsory for their employees.

We’re offering a fixed fee vaccination policy drafting service, for a fixed price of £950 plus vat.

This includes:

  • A consultation to determine the best approach for your employees.
  • A dedicated team of experts to ensure you have the right policy for your business.

Preparing for the end of furlough and redundancies

With the furlough scheme set to close at the end of September, many employers are financially preparing for restructures, redundancies, or hopefully business as usual.

To make sure you are prepared, our team can offer practical advice and legal support on how to prepare for the end of furlough and everything that brings with it.
