Do you have employees still home working as a result of the coronavirus pandemic? Working from home numbers have increased since 2019 when the government said to work from home where possible. For many organisations, this may feel like a daunting time, with worries over employee well-being and financial security.
To help you manage this change in working, we have put together some free advice on home working and top tips for remote working which you can share with your employees to help and support them when working from home.
With so many employees thrust into a home working arrangement, our eLearning is also the perfect way to support your employees and their training needs. We have created a specific emergency homeworker package, launched to help you manage this situation and provide employees with tools to help them succeed at home working.
Support employees working from home and ensure you meet health and safety compliance requirements with our Homeworker Awareness course, including training employees on how to spot common hazards when working from home and report accidents and ill-health.
