Provide support to your furloughed employees

The ongoing uncertainty caused by the outbreak of Covid-19 has caused millions of people across the UK to learn a new word – ‘furlough’. Intended as a job retention scheme during these unprecedented times, furlough allows organisations to give their employees a temporary leave of absence while receiving a government grant to pay the wages of these furloughed staff, ultimately preventing them from being made redundant.

If members of your team have already been, or will be, furloughed, this guide will provide you with guidance on how best to support them and your wider workforce through this unchartered territory.
