With the constant shifting landscape due to the Covid-19 pandemic the government has stepped in to try and stabilize the economic shock it may cause. This has been through financial measures to help the country and its citizens to keep going as normally as possible despite the difficult circumstances. The Treasury have announced an unprecedented raft of funding to enable this.
 
One particular aspect of this is the Government Job Retention Scheme, which is something that will have affected millions of people all over the country, many of them homeowners, and tenants alike. 
 
To get a better understanding of this, and the level of support on offer through this scheme we caught up with HR professional Rosemary Darby-Jenkins of Signpost HR Solutions to find out more.... 

Update - Since recording the video on Friday (17th) morning, the Government announced that the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme has been extended by one month, to the end of June, to reflect the continuing social distancing measures.
