Working through COVID-19 and beyond: the perspective from employers
In September 2020, we asked Working Families’ employer members to tell us how they had managed the many challenges the COVID-19 pandemic had presented.
26 employers responded, answering a detailed survey that explored their experiences during the pandemic and their future plans, with an emphasis on their support for employees who are parents and carers. The employers we heard from are based across the UK and they work across the public, private and third sectors, in a variety of industries.
This briefing draws on these employers’ experiences to give a snapshot of employer best practice, showing how employers have risen to the challenge of supporting their staff.
