Upside of Furlough

Live Webinar: The upside of furlough?

What a month it’s been! Just as we think we understand furlough, we’re now having to get to grips with how it interacts with everything else such as maternity leave, holiday pay and of course redundancy.

As HR professionals, we certainly know that furloughed employees can’t do any work for their employers, but they can do training. In fact, more and more professional bodies and government agencies are coming out and encouraging us to do just that.

Our friends at run interactive online webinars for both furloughed and home-working employees to keep them learning, keep them connected and keep them motivated. After all, it’s a very tangible and low cost way to demonstrate how much we still value them.

To find out if they’re any good, join us for an exclusive taster session for Acacia students called “Finance Fun for HR: understanding company accounts in 60 minutes!”. This will be at 11am on 20 May led by Angus Farr, a Chartered Accountant and Chartered HR professional who was one of the guest speakers at the Mark Robertson Awards back in November.
