Furloughing Advice for Business Owners 

We're here to help you understand and implement the UK Government's Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, helping your business survive in these challenging times.


The past few weeks have seen a lot of discussion around ‘furloughing’ and the new ‘Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme’. But what exactly does it mean? How do you implement the scheme? And how should you communicate it to your managers and employees? 

At Blake : Connolly, we aim to cut through all the noise; focusing on key aspects of the scheme that are important to business leaders. We're here to dispel some of the myths currently circulating, to spell things out clearly and simply, and to provide practical answers to the questions you have around the scheme. (No legal jargon, confusing accountant speak or HR talk!) 

We've been working with businesses,  sharing our expertise on elements of the scheme, key to business owners and managers.  We've helped businesses: 

  • Understand who in their business is eligible for the scheme

  • What they need to do to furlough someone properly 

  • How to can claim the grant 

  • How to bring employees back into the business after furloughing,

  • And much, much more.  


Working with us, you'll receive practical advice to help you, and your business, navigate these unprecedented times. 

You'll get the opportunity to ask questions and discuss key issues further, ensuring you get clarity on the topics important to you. You’ll come out of the webinar with the knowledge you need to implement the job retention scheme across your business. 

We've already helped thousands of businesses, like yours, understand the Job Retention Scheme.  We've run webinars for the CIPD and the Festival of Enterprise.  

The CIPD webinar was held on 9th April 20202 and included a Q&A session from employers and HR professionals.  You can watch the session here

The Festival of Enterprise are holding a series of free webinars around COVID-19.  Tom Blake led a session on 21st April, aimed at business leaders, which covered the key elements of the scheme.  The session was recorded and is available to watch here.
