WORKING FROM HOME: We speak to a business in Birkenhead as covid restrictions are reintroduced

 

New coronavirus restrictions are expected to become law this week as Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer confirmed his party will be supporting the plans.

It comes as the Prime Minister could potentially be facing the largest rebellion of his premiership, with more than 60 Conservative MPs said to be against the imposition of further restrictive coronavirus measures.

On Wednesday, Boris Johnson announced he would be triggering Plan B, in a bid to buy the UK time in the fight against the Omicron variant of the virus.

Tories have reacted with dismay to the proposals, with tens of backbenchers pledging to vote down plans for vaccine passports to be made mandatory for large venues, compulsory mask-wearing in most public indoor settings, as well as guidance for employees to work from home where they can.

But for some people, working from home just does not feel like an option anymore.

At Vigo IT Solutions in Birkenhead, one of the main aims of the Managing Director Kurt Beaumont-Jones is to make sure his staff feel listened to and valued.

So when the government announced that they would expect people to start working from home once more, he could not ignore the fact that for some members of staff this was bad news.

One of the main comments made by the staff here was that they missed the camaraderie and the social aspect of work, which for some just was not replicated over video chat.
Moving forward Kurt said that he believes businesses and organisations should be given more autonomy when it comes to decisions on working from home and assessing what works best for the workers.
