Prior to the current economic climate, many people had not heard of the term furlough but this term is now being spoken about across the globe. The term furlough means a leave of absence, so in reference to the Coronavirus crisis, this means that instead of laying off staff during this troubling period, employers have the option of ‘furloughing’. This is advocated by the government and the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme which has been set up to support employers during this time. One in four UK workers, or more than nine million people, are expected to be furloughed during the coronavirus crisis as businesses struggle to survive. Those on furlough need to adjust to this significant change. This is the time, more than ever, to discover the power of learning new skills to enhance your resilience. Resilience is not just your ability to bounce back, but also your capacity to adapt in the face of challenging circumstances, whilst maintaining a healthy mental wellbeing. This means transforming your mindset by recognising opportunities for growth and development. The UpSkill Digital team have put together a free live session focusing on enabling furloughed workers and leaders of furloughed workers to survive and thrive in these unprecedented times. This 45 minute, high-impact session will outline the essentials needed to hit the ground running and support your wellbeing and learning culture while being furloughed.
