Man with a briefcase and a surgical mask

Cantium CEO, Mark Scott, Executive Director of HR, Gill Nye, and Director of Strategy, Nick Hunter join Fred MacAuley for this episode. The discussion centres around bringing the workforce back to their workplaces and the plans that are being put in place to keep them safe and mentally secure.

Firstly, they outline the various challenges and the need to be mindful of differing attitudes toward a return to the workplace. So, it’s about implementing smart controls, but with adequate provision for flexibility.

Much of the process is about engagement with the staff and education about new hygiene processes that meet not only Government guidelines, but also the expectations of fellow employees.

The discussion also explores how social distancing might be achieved by a combination of physical changes to office layouts, shift patterns, extended working hours, flexible working and a continuation of home working.

They also explore how the management team are seeking to take the positives from the enforced lockdown to implement even more flexible working arrangements for the staff in the future.
