Belfast Chamber Welcomes Decision to Amend Work From Home Guidance

Belfast Chamber has welcomed the decision to update NI’s work from home guidance with the removal of the advice to ‘work from home where possible’.

 

Welcoming the move, Belfast Chamber Chief Executive Simon Hamilton said, “This is good news and something which Belfast Chamber has encouraged Ministers to do for some time. Whilst other jurisdictions had updated their work from home guidance months ago, NI had lagged behind so this is long overdue but no less welcome. Belfast Chamber members have invested heavily in making their offices safe places to work and we are pleased to see that fact reflected in this common sense decision.

 

This step in the right direction will allow many businesses to introduce new models of working and will also provide a much needed boost for businesses in places like Belfast city centre as staff return to offices on a more regular basis”.
