Ok so I am a self confessed lover of winter, all that snuggling up in cosy jumpers and endless mugs of hot chocolate, but even as a fan of the colder months the constantly changing weather can be frustrating.
All we hear about is “floods looking set to hit the south again” and “the El nino effect is happening this year”, we’ve even had the odd tornado, but even with all the warnings one thing is for sure, the roads will be impassable and the rail network will at some point come to a halt due to icy tracks! Now we blame the government all the time for not putting in the correct measures to ensure that Britain keeps moving, after all this is not the first time “winter” has come to our country! But as employers, what are you doing to make sure your business continues to operate?
Ok, so you can’t grit the roads, and you certainly can’t dredge our canals and rivers, but you can ensure that your employees know where they stand and what they can do when they really can’t get to work.
Have you put working from home measures in place? Do you have an alternative office to work from? Have you allowed any flexibility for your staff that can get in but might just take that bit longer? No, well now is the time to do it!
