Continue encouraging working from home.

Reward companies and individuals to continue, where possible to work at home for a couple of days a week. This will in the short term allow the lockdown to ease sooner and in the long term there are benefits for the companies, employees work life balance, reduction in pollution, commuting times, etc.

Why the contribution is important

In the short term companies can Introduce social distancing easier, the long term benefits are endless.

    This I believe will assist in managing how many people are outdoors to help control the spread of the virus keeping us all safer, also if we add flexible start & finish times to the working day, part time hours etc

    It is a possibility but many people, myself included, enjoy the social aspect of being with others at work and I would not like this to become the norm.

    I would much rather go out and do my work than sit in my dingy bedroom and do it on a near-ancient laptop. Plus, my personal complaint with working from home is overall slow correspondance via email. Don't get me started on video calls because to me it's a violation of one's privacy. This may be beneficial to some but not for the likes of me. I'd much rather be furloughed until it's 100% safe to return to the working premises.

    If wfh is a key factor in virus control then of course reward companies, organisations and individuals to keep doing it. Not sure what that reward would look like but perhaps some kind of bonus that goes directly into a pot for more NHS staff with a table of results for each co/org?

    There should be some sort of relief or one of payment to help cover the cost of those who are working from home.
