Following the Governments announcement regarding a Third National Lockdown, Emergent Crown, due to our "Key Supplier" status, are continuing to provide goods and services in accordance with current safety precautions and guidelines.

Research shows that despite the series of lockdowns, productivity has been maintained for many home workers during the crisis, but experts warn staff will need support for this to be the case long term.

Almost half (45 per cent) of workers expect to work more flexibly after lockdown restrictions on UK businesses are lifted, according to research.
The survey, conducted by O2, ICM and YouGov, predicted employees will be reluctant to give up working remotely after lockdown, with many believing their employer will permanently change their approach to flexible, "smart" working as a result of the crisis.  A third (33 per cent) of respondents expected to work from home at least three days a week after lockdown, and 81 per cent expected to work remotely at least one day a week.
Only 15 per cent of the 996 employers surveyed said remote working had impacted employee productivity negatively, while 27 per cent said there had been a small negative impact. A further 15 per cent said home working during the pandemic had not impacted staff productivity.  More than two-thirds of companies (67 per cent) said three-quarters (75 per cent) of their organisation was working remotely because of Covid-19. A majority (87 per cent) felt they now had the technology and resources in place to work productively and remotely for an extended period. This was despite just over half (56 per cent) of employers reporting less than a tenth of their workforce worked remotely before the crisis.

To assist with this, we have a number of solutions to allow staff to be able to work more productively from home, from Folding Homeworker desks to Orthopaedic Task chairs.  So, relinquish the use of the dining table and dining chairs, and become more productive!
