Since Covid-19 was declared a pandemic on March 11th, there has been unprecedented changes in the way we live and work. With a lot of ambiguity, misinformation and in some areas a lack of detailed guidance, Baker Stuart have brought together the official guidance, facts and advice that has been created by both the Government and other official bodies to help you easily access information relevant to Covid-19, what Covid-19 Secure means, how to limit the spread of the coronavirus in the workplace and how it will impact the post lockdown return to work both short and long term.
Baker Stuart have already worked closely with several organisations designated as essential service providers right from the start of the lockdown to help them to create Covid-19 secure environments in which they can safely continue to work, and wanted to share this expertise, as well as to look to the future of the workplace and the issues and opportunities that might be encountered.

There has been a huge increase in working from home during the Covid-19 pandemic. Many have adapted to it well but there are challenges to both the individual employees and their managers. Employees need to find ways to maintain productivity when working from home, whilst protecting their wellbeing, and managers need to adapt their management style in order to effectively manage home workers during the covid-19 pandemic. With home working post-Covid-19 set to be a major part of our “new normal”, here are our resources to help you and your team work effectively, productively, and safely from home:
The post Covid-19 world of work (the “New Normal”) is uncertain, both in terms of what the landscape will look like, and the time it will take to get there. However, what we can predict is the following, and all of these suggest a need to re-evaluate current working styles in order to have an effective way to work post Covid-19.
Covid-19 has severely impacted the use of office space short term, but what will the long term impact be? Could it be an opportunity to completely re-evaluate how we work and what that means in terms of where we work, the required workplace size and facilities and associated costs? The post Covid-19 world of work (the “new normal”) is uncertain but what we can predict is:
Higher education has been impacted severly by Covid-19 creating a numbe rof issues both short and long term.
Like the corporate world, Covid-19 has had a major impact on office accommodation, but more seriously, a very negative impact on already very stretch local authority budgets. However, also like the corporate world, it does present an opportunity to reevaluate how we deliver our services.
Manufacturing is arguably one of the sectors where Covid-19 secure working is the hardest to implement in the short term, and even where possible supply chain issues have severely impacted output. But what will the impacts and opportunities be on the sector be impacted long term, after the pandemic has receded?
