DANISH GOVERNMENT LOOKS AT A WAY OUT OF LOCK DOWN - A VIEW FROM OUR FINANCE DIRECTOR
Updated: May 10
Whilst we have always been able to get our workforce to work from home, juggling this with the requirement to also home school children can be challenging. At Wood Thilsted we have actively tried to support this through:
Removing ‘core hours’ and providing our staff complete flexibility on when they work through this period. Focussing on output, not on when and how work was performed.
Allowing staff to reduce workloads where home commitments become too much
Ensuring that our senior team make regular contact with our staff to ensure their wellbeing is maintained
Yesterday the Danish Government gave a glimpse to how #covid19 restrictions can gradually relaxed. For those people trying to juggle working at home full time with the requirement to also full time home school, their announcement provides some mild hope. By returning the youngest children back to school first, those children with potentially the higher dependency needs at home, allows employees to increase the separation of work and life once again.
