As many housing associations have risen to the challenge of remote working in 2020, managers are needing to address the unique challenges that this involves. In this podcast Eleanor Bamber, Senior Associate, and Sali Owens, Solicitor in our Employment and HR Services team take a practical approach, discussing the data protection issues involved in this way of working as well as the appropriate steps required to monitor productivity and manage from afar. Their conversation can help your organisation identify where its vulnerabilities lie and take early action to ensure this new way of working remains effective and secure.
