    Return to the Office: Office spaces of the future

    Return to the Office: Office spaces of the future

    A widespread implementation of post-pandemic hybrid working models is changing what employers and employees require from their office spaces. 
    With most people looking to continue spending at least some of their time working from home, but employers still recognising the benefits of being in the office, flexibility is a key priority.
    In this final episode of our Return to the Office podcast series, Real Estate partner Felicity Lindsay joins Anna Fletcher to discuss what the future may hold for offices and how the role of a physical workplace will continue to change.

    Return to the office: Tax in a post-pandemic workplace

    Return to the office: Tax in a post-pandemic workplace

    While some employers will be expecting employees to be back in the office full-time once the UK's pandemic restrictions have lifted, many will look to adopt a hybrid working model, where employees' time is split between home and the office.
    While these hybrid models will vary from business to business, there are some considerations that all employers will need to make in relation to tax for this new way of working – such as tax relief, travel costs and expenses.
    In this the second episode of our 'Return to the Office' podcast series, Anna Fletcher is joined by corporate finance and tax partner Zoe Fatchen to discuss the tax issues employers should be thinking about in a post-pandemic workplace.

    Return to the office: Data protection

    With the end of COVID-19 restrictions in sight, many businesses and their employees will be returning to the office within the next few months.
    While some employers will expect their workforce to be back full-time, others will adopt a hybrid way of working with employees' time split between the office and home.
    This presents an array of challenges and issues that employers need to prepare for to ensure safety in the workplace, as well as business continuity.
    This podcast series, brought to you by Gowling WLG's Employment team, discusses the key issues and how employers should address them to make sure their return to the office runs smoothly.
    In this first episode, legal director Anna Fletcher is joined by partner Jocelyn Paulley from our Data Protection team.
    Jocelyn will be discussing the key considerations that employers need to focus on in terms of data protection compliance in this new workplace and how to make sure that confidential information remains secure.
