On 22 September 2020, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that, in England, office workers 'should work from home if they can', aside from in roles where this is not possible. This has been the situation for workers in Scotland and Wales since lockdown was implemented in March and has not changed. Organisations should therefore bear this in mind when making plans to reopen the workplace. We will update guidance and tools as necessary in line with commentry from the government. 

As lockdown measures are relaxed in the coming weeks and months, the toolkit below lists all new and existing content to help manage staff who are coming back to work.

There are a number of areas that organisations will need to consider when reopening. This extends not only to social distancing and hygiene measures but also managing staff concerns and being mindful of their mental health.

As organisations start to reopen, we will be regularly reviewing and updating this toolkit.
