The weather outside is frightful but business continues

The weather outside is frightful but business continues
 
The widespread disruption caused by the extreme snowy conditions has resulted in millions of employees unable to make it to work.  The scale of absenteeism is estimated to cost the country 230m a day according to the Forum of Private Business (FPB).
 
With further snow showers forecast across Britain, the TUC are urging that employers allow staff to work from home rather than risk driving in the increasingly treacherous conditions if it isnt safe to do so.  Many employers will have a bad weather policy in place, and those companies with a flexible working policy and the technology for employees to work from home will continue to maintain normal service levels and avoid losing revenue.  David Egan, Remedy HCMS managing director commented: being a SaaS recruitment software, Chameleon-i has helped consultants to stay productive and allowed companies to be more flexible in their approach to the disruption.  Our activity statistics are showing our typical users are online despite the adverse weather conditions. 
 
Home working employees offer an opportunity to minimise the cost to business, Rebecca Clake, CIPD organisation and resourcing adviser, said: The crude millions-of-pounds estimates of the cost to the economy of bad weather often dont take into account the millions of motivated workers who will be working remotely.
