We're five months on from the start of the UK Government's 2020 furlough scheme, so this week on The Good Practice Podcast we're discussing what it's been like for those who have experienced it.

Knowledge Pool's Scott Fellows joins Gemma and Ross G to share his story, while David Hayden from the CIPD shares more general insights into how people have experienced the scheme.

We discuss:

  • how organizations have supported employees who are furloughed
  • what we've learned about how people adapt to dramatic change
  • support available to organizations and individuals at this time
