Many people are falling through the gaps despite the Government's best efforts to implement protective schemes. Employees starting a new job after 28 February are one such group. Here are some thoughts on how to handle the situation.
#furlough #SME

If you have furloughed employees, you may want to consider a voluntary online coffee for 20 minutes at the same time each week to catch up (not work though). Keep employees informed and engaged to protect the longevity of your business. #SME #supportsmallbusiness #mentalhealth

Fun wordy fact of the day for kids: the first freelancers were knights who weren’t attached to any single lord and master, and so were *free* to use their *lances*, or weapons, for anyone who paid them. #homeschooling

Useful to know that anyone who has not taken their statutory leave during Covid-19 will be able to spread their leave allowance over the following 2 leave years. That will help with planning. #wearegoingtogetthroughthis

A little thank you from us...

We’d like to offer free membership of the #DisruptiveHRClub to anyone working in @NHSuk or any #health service in any country. To say thank you for all the work you are doing during #COVID19.
