Tricks and tools for better working from home


Louise Halford and her home office

When one of Louise Halford's staff members returned from a ski trip with flu-like symptoms, she advised him to work from home rather than risk bringing the coronavirus into the office.
Ms. Halford also decided to work from home after feeling some possible symptoms as well.
"We work with someone who has a compromised immune system, so I don't want to take any chances," says Ms. Halford, co-founder of Manchester-based Evolve Family Law.
Around the world, millions of other people have also been told to stay at home in a bid to slow the spread of Covid-19.
That includes Apple where the chief executive Tim Cook told staff, "feel free to work remotely if your job allows".
Amazon and Google have similar policies in place.
"Employers are definitely taking this seriously," says Hannah Ford, a partner, and employment law expert at law firm Stevens & Bolton.
"We are advising lots of clients on crisis management plans."


Fortunately, there is now a huge variety of tools and services available to help employees perform their roles effectively from home.
