With a second lockdown period having been introduced last week in England, and the possibility looming over the rest of the UK, what exactly does this mean for businesses?
We may now feel as though we've taken a step back in time and find ourselves back to square 1 in terms of working life - it seems as though the dust had just begun to settle and we had all finally got used to the transition back to the office before the UK was thrown into chaos once again.
The silver lining to this situation is that having been through it before, we are more prepared than ever. First time round, the challenge of working from home seemed too stress-inducing to even think about - but with the technology we possess today and a higher level of knowledge in using it all, Lockdown 2.0 doesn't seem as big a threat for many of us in terms of business continuity.
We have the beauty of collaborative tools such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams for continuing to meet with clients and colleagues alike, and reliable work-from-home solutions to ensure the important stuff gets done - regardless of if you are in your PJ's or not!
According to Business Insider, 20 major companies have extended their Work From Home setup for staff all the way through to summer 2021, with many other businesses following in their footsteps.
