Since the first UK Covid cases in early 2020 much has changed. In business and commerce firms which quickly adapted and modified were the most successful in overcoming the challenges presented.
Progression in the vaccine roll out has reduced the severity of the disease and announcements that the government is speeding up the booster programme are welcomed. However, the full effects of Omicron are still unknown and so businesses need, once again, to prepare for further disruption this winter, so what else should be considered?
