Company culture post Covid-19 - How will yours change?

We have all seen huge change to the way businesses are organised and their working practices since the Covid-19 lockdown was imposed in March 2020. There was initially a phase of disbelief at the severity of restrictions and the fact that some sectors of business were ordered to shut down completely.

Welcoming new employees in a socially distanced way

The Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically affected many businesses. This has varied from complete shutdown for those categorised as non-essential; the provision of reduced services for others; to being overwhelmed by demand in the health and care sectors as well as the food supply chain (and HR to make all this happen!)

Now that things have settled slightly, employers are reviewing their workforces to see what needs to be done to regain control. Many business owners have realised that even with the furlough scheme and range of financial support being offered, they simply do not have enough work to support all their workforce and so the inevitable redundancies are starting to occur. But some sectors need lots more staff to get through the crisis.
