Our Temporary Home Working Policy has been updated to include guidance about taking a break during daylight hours.  The relevant paragraph is as follows;

“Employees may adjust their normal working hours when working from home, to accommodate the opportunity for a longer break during the day.  Employees are required to discuss any adjustments with their line manager prior.  These adjustments may include starting earlier than usual or finishing later than usual to allow for a longer than normal lunch break.  It is recommended employees consider using this flexibility to build some form of physical exercise into their day.  This flexibility option is to encourage employees to continue to care for their physical wellbeing during these extraordinary times.”
