April 2020 Issue

This month, I’m starting all Cross Platform Media titles with the same message. I want to open this issue firstly by wishing you all well. I do hope the consequences of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic have not struck too hard; whether they be health-related or, indeed, financial.

Much of us have adopted a work-from- home strategy in recent weeks to stop the spread of COVID-19; however, understandably, remote working isn’t an option for all. In this month’s issue, we’ve talked to Tina Chander, Head of the Employment Team at leading Midlands law firm, Wright Hassall, for her Coronavirus advice for employers. Here, Tina highlights everything you need to know about keeping staff’s wellbeing front of mind and operating during these difficult times. Turn to page 24 to read up on her advice.

Meanwhile, on page 07, we’ve scrolled through the pages of Twitter to bring you COVID-19 responses from the general public, and examples of how practices are spreading working-from- home positivity amongst their workforces.
