How the pandemic changed our work expectations


The working environment has changed dramatically in recent years, due in no uncertain terms to the pandemic.

We saw the vast majority of us working from home, or WFH as it has come to be referred to, and a number of challenges both financially and operationally for many businesses.

For many workers and lots of businesses, WFH is not an option, and eventually life returned to some kind of normality, Whatever normality might be! The construction industry, the NHS, the majority of the property sector, factory workers and the like all went back to their place of work; in fact some never left!

However, lots of us got very used to WFH and many have remained doing so, or at least working in a hybrid fashion, be that 1, 2, or 3 days a week from home. This is due to the fact that the forward-thinking businesses who could see the benefit of allowing people to do this, were happy to accommodate them.

What this new working strategy has created is the option of a different kind of working contractual arrangement. A contractual arrangement that will see businesses save around 18% on their fiscal responsibilities, whilst also allowing their qualifying team members the luxury of seeing between 10 and 15% more money in their net pay packets.

If you’d like to know more about how you can legally, compliantly and efficiently transition your people, then please get in touch with me and I’ll be happy to arrange a call with you to discuss.
