In the past couple of weeks we've been calling members to find out how you're going and what support we can offer.
The number one concern you've told us about has been the adjustment to working from home and the challenges associated with that. To support your work at home see our eight tips for remote working.
You’ve also told us about your desire to help the country respond to Covid-19, your uncertainty about the future, the need for clear information about what is coming and support for well-being during these unprecedented times.
We’ve taken what you’ve said and are working to support you in as many ways as we can. This includes increasing our online resources, including professional development offerings and webinars, as well as providing additional online content to keep you informed. We are also advocating to Government about those things you have told us are causing you – and the industries you work in – concern.
On Tuesday 7 April we hosted a webinar with Dr Dougal Sutherland, a clinical psychologist from Umbrella Health. This event was very well attended, and we received a lot of positive feedback. We're working on providing more opportunities to help you manage your wellbeing. Stay tuned over the next while. In the meantime we have a number of short articles and tips on our website to help.
Employment rights webinar
On Monday 20 April we're hosting a webinar presented by Charlotte Bates, Employment Lawyer and Director of Employment Relations at Humankind. The webinar is about understanding your employment rights and obligations.
We know the lockdown has created a lot of uncertainty around future projects and how that will affect jobs. We want to support you as you navigate these challenges.
Moving between the levels
To keep you informed about what is happening with the national Covid-19 situation, and how this impacts you, we are providing up to date information on our website.
Please continue to watch this space as we develop further ways to support you during these uncertain times. As always, we value hearing from you. You can get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
