In 2019, 5.82 million small businesses (with 0 to 49 employees) accounted for 99.3% of total business in the UK.
Are you one of these businesses? If so, then your business is extremely valuable to the UK economy, and continuity of work is necessary to the survival of your business, as well as your future and the future of your staff.
With the uncertainties surrounding the current coronavirus pandemic, we are facing challenges with keeping our business activities running throughout this outbreak.
These are unprecedented times, and for many business owners, it is forcing them to rethink an entire new way of working, to allow their staff to continue working from home through periods of self-isolation.
Before now, there was no large reason to have such provisions in place. Many small businesses have been caught out as they don’t have the resources and technology of the bigger corporations, that allow staff to continue working from home.
