Time for flexi-time?

The present lock-down has had a varied effect on UK businesses.

Obviously, firms that operate in hospitality, tourism and retail – where in the main, the no-contact directive means businesses can no longer operate – have more or less stopped trading. Ironically, other businesses that have built their sales online are flourishing.

In between, are countless organisations that have their staff working at home while office space is left vacant.

When the lock-down is eased it is likely that Her Majesty's Government will “suggest” that we continue to observe personal distancing. In an office or factory environment this will likely create issues.

Perhaps a solution will be to maintain a flexible approach; a mix of attendance at the office mixed with working at home?

In this way we could limit the numbers of workers in the office at any one particular time, but still get work done.

This approach would involve planning, but once a routine was established this may allow us to re-establish our business base without jeopardising personal distancing rules.

It will be interesting to see how the Government approaches the easing of the lock-down. Hopefully, what is doing the rounds in the press at the moment will be elaborated on and confirmed this coming weekend.
