Life after Furlough; making sure you’re ready for what comes next

by | Aug 4, 2021 | News

Our panel of experts in Recruitment, HR and Mental Health come together to discuss issues many of us face around returning to the workplace, particularly after furlough, long periods out of employment, or months of digital-only working!

The webinar was hosted by Angus Mylne, a member of the Keep Britain Working team.
