IoD responds to flexible furlough announcement

Institute of Directors: ‘The furlough scheme has played an immense role protecting jobs, and business leaders understand it couldn’t be sustained at the same level forever. This is a much more gradual tapering than many were expecting, reflecting the concerns our members have raised. Despite this, there’s no masking the fact that if demand doesn’t pick up, many will still struggle to keep hold of all their staff through the Autumn.’
