Job retention during the coronavirus crisis

How employee-owned companies are responding, doing all they can to look after their employees whilst protecting their businesses.

Last week we set out our analysis of some key Covid-19 issues facing employee-owned companies, including how to make decisions (including furloughing) affecting your, or your clients’, staff.

The Employee Ownership Association has now provided an excellent webinar in which leaders from two employee-owned companies explain the steps they have taken and how they have sought to strike the best balance between protecting their businesses and looking after their people.  It also includes some brief practical legal advice on some of the key things to think about.

We strongly recommend it.  It can be viewed here:

This is part of a planned series.  The next webinar will be at 11.00am tomorrow (Thursday 9 April) and will take a detailed look at a subject close to most employer’s hearts at the moment ‘Looking After Colleagues: Mental Health and Wellbeing’
