Supporting the members of a Trade Body during Lockdown

We were delighted to be approached a few months ago by trade body BASDA (Business Application Software Developers Association) to take part in an online event they were running to support members dealing with a range of issues relating to COVID-19.

The series of events were designed to enable members to meet and share their experiences in a safe environment as well as obtain insights and advice from a number of external speakers.

Topics covered by the events included supporting the mental health and wellbeing of employees, the Government Job Retention Scheme and the management of the furlough process, as well as ensuring the Health and Safety of employees both whilst working from home and in the run up to, during and after their eventual return to the workplace.

The event was attended by a wide range of members and we were able to provide them with general guidance on the main areas for consideration during the completion of COVID risk assessments as well as answer specific questions raised by them.

We were also invited to collaborate with members in the production of a guide highlighting the top things to consider when returning to the workplace.
