Scottish businesses: Complete the Government Covid-19 response survey and attend workshops

Posted on in Business News, Cycles News, Political News

The Scottish Government retail division are looking for input with regards to the recent adaptations in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The survey is aimed to help them understand the adaptations that have already been made across different businesses and sectors.

Complete the survey now

 

The Scottish Government will be using the live adaptations survey results – which will close on Thursday 28th April 2022, 5:00 pm – to help inform the workshop question set.

Following the survey, they are looking to hold some workshops to discuss the adaptations in more detail for different sectors.

The session will help them to address:


•    What adaptations have been implemented by businesses like yours to date?;
•    What adaptations are supported by you and your customers?;
•    What challenges exist to retaining adaptations within your sector and more widely?;
•    What the Scottish Government can do to support you in making adaptations?

If you may be interested in participating in the workshops, please let them know via email no later than Tuesday 3rd May at SaferWorkplacesCovidAdaptations@gov.scot.
