To add to Ian's last comment on this excellent webcast, we also see being furloughed as an opportunity to perhaps digitally up-skill (social media), learn a new language, or perhaps research new products/destinations that may be sought after when the market comes back. There are so many free online training courses available.
Also this could be a good time to rethink your career, update your CV and LinkedIn profile. Could you retrain? How transferable are your skills? Very rarely do you get the time to reflect so use it effectively.
Good for the soul is to do some voluntary work too.
Don't see this as "stuck at home" - instead view it as "safe at home".
Travel industry staff made redundant before the announcement of government measures to support businesses should contact their former employers to investigate the option of being furloughed. The advice came from Ian Brooks, partner and co-founder of Gail Kenny Executive Recruitment, in the latest in a series of Travel Weekly webcasts hosted during the coronavirus crisis.
