Following the news that certain lockdown restrictions will be lifted, should businesses across the UK still be focusing on keeping staff at home, or getting them back to the workplace as soon as possible?

In the lead up to last night’s announcement by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, global tech giants Facebook and Google announced that they will let their employees continue working from home for the rest of the year – no matter what the government decides to do.

The companies also announced new plans to reopen their offices across the world imminently, but are allowing more home working flexibility.

Facebook initially said it would reopen its offices on July 6, and Google previously announced said it would keep its work from home policy until 1 June.

However, Facebook and Google employees can now continue to work from home for the rest of the year.

So, should businesses follow suit and keep staff away from offices? Or should business leaders get their staff back into the workplace as soon as the government allows? Let us know your thoughts!
