Covid-19 has presented a constantly shifting challenge for businesses. With pandemic- related change likely to remain the one business constant for some time to come, this BIMA Hangout aims to provide as much certainty and clarity as possible about what happens next, with practical tips you can implement in your business.

In addition to answering your questions on the future of work, we will explore:

  • How to monitor remote workers
  • How to deal with flexible working requests, policies and contractual amendments
  • Issues arising from increased employee mobility
  • What happens at the end of furlough and how should you deal with redundancies?


Never has it been more important to plan for your business’ future. And never has it been more of a challenge to do so.

Just understanding your options can help you to stay one step ahead. Our Hangouts sessions will cut through the rumour and misinformation and arm you with practical information you can put to work in your business.
