Some people may be working from home for the first time due to the coronavirus outbreak. This guide can help the transition feel easier and less isolating.


Some organisations may be encouraging their staff to work from home for the first time due to the coronavirus outbreak. While risk to individuals is low, preventing the spread of the illness will help limit the number of cases and prevent vulnerable people from becoming infected.

However, the prospect of working in self-isolation might be daunting for those who have not worked from home before. This guide from Leapers explores what you can do to plan for the possibility of staff needing to self-isolate, as well as tips for home-workers. Advice includes using a variety of ways of keeping in touch with colleagues, how to build a structure for your day, and ensuring you don’t neglect the important social aspect of work.

It is available both as a web page, but also as a PDF that you can print off and display or email to your teams. You are invited to make a donation to Leapers, but this is not required in order to receive the PDF.
