Business can be complex at the best of times, but what happens when a pandemic hits and forces the world into shutdown? We took some time to reflect on the past four months and spoke to Chris about the realities of running a business during a pandemic, what it’s like to manage a fully remote team, and lessons learned in lockdown.
In recent weeks, global events have prompted us to think about how we actively promote equality and diversity in the workplace, in the limber community and at HQ. This is important, and we'd appreciate it if you could take a few minutes of your time to read.
We're pleased to announce that earlier this year, we received a grant from Innovate UK to help tackle the impact of Covid-19. Find out how we're using the funding to make a real difference to the hospitality sector and beyond.
We’re well aware that for some of our workers, the Covid-19 outbreak may cause extra financial strain and worry. We hope the disruption is as brief as possible, but in the meantime, we’ve outlined the current government guidelines and financial support available for those who find themselves with reduced income due to coronavirus.
With the hospitality industry expected to take temporary, but substantial hit as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, over the next few weeks things could get difficult for small and medium businesses. While there’s nothing to suggest that the sector won’t successfully recover, now’s a good time to get your finances in order and look at how long you can ‘last’ if you do find that there’s a significant dent in your income.
Coronavirus is understandably taking its toll on people's mental health, with the constant news and updates on the pandemic leaving many people feeling uncertain, insecure and afraid about the future. However, it’s important for us to remember that people are resilient and society has faced extremely tough times before and pulled through. We will do it again, and we will come out the other side of this - stronger and more compassionate than before.
