Covid-19 adjustments

Herefordshire Council's main priority has always been putting the people in our community and workplace at the heart of everything we do. This is why when the government announced that it was essential for all employees' safety to work from home, we put that into practice straight away.

Our colleagues have greatly adapted to working from home. They have the right technology to stay connected with their peers and have all the required equipment to effectively do their job while working from home. Online coffee catch-ups and virtual team lunches are now the norm.

For those who need to use office buildings in agreed circumstances, we have created a Covid-19 secure office environment for them to work in. Before entering the office building we ask colleagues to undertake our Covid-19 e-learning training module, so they can ensure the safety of themselves and others.
