COVID-19: MOVING FORWARD, TOGETHER

Looking ahead with confidence

Adapting to new challenges

We’ve all been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in some way; significant changes to our day-to-day life, career plans on hold, economic insecurity, fear for our health and the health of our friends and family and, for some, having to cope with the unimaginable grief of losing loved ones.

While some parts of our lives have begun to feel more familiar, changes to the way we travel, work and interact with others may be with us for a while longer. And, we are still unsure about the long-term impact of the crisis. Adjusting to this ‘new normal ’, in which the future seems uncertain, is a big challenge for our mental wellbeing.

Returning to the workplace is a particular source of anxiety for many. After months of social distancing, the idea of commuting and working in an office again may be nerve-wracking. And after adjusting to working from home many people are anxious to maintain their new work-life blend.

The accountancy sector has been one of the many industries hit hard by the economic fall out of the pandemic. Small business owners have had to adjust to a downturn in demand. Large firms have been forced to cut pay, reduce hours, freeze promotions and make redundancies. And as government efforts to support businesses through the crisis come to an end, the number of jobs lost is likely to increase.

The Covid-19 pandemic continues to pose new challenges, that make the weeks, months, even years ahead seem uncertain. But we’ll be here to support you, every step of the way.
