Last Sunday (10th of May) PM Borris Johnson addressed the nation outlining a new set of rules surrounding COVID-19 practice.A regime which was condemned as divisive and confusing to many. In his speech, he “actively encouraged” people to return to work if they cannot do so from home. And while he was mainly referring to those in construction and laboratory sectors, the statement frightened many employers about the prospect of allowing staff back into the office space.
“Working from home has both its pros and cons, and our research shows that it could definitely have a lasting impact on the habits of workers in HR and recruitment” comments Robert Gordon, CEO of Hitachi Capital.
“This changing landscape provides employers with an opportunity to re-evaluate their business models. Remote working has forced everyone to rethink their working practises and opens up new opportunities for attracting and retaining the best talent from a wider pool. It could also lead to operational savings, using agile working to offset the cost of expanding office premises.”
