Test and Trace: what business needs to know

With the coronavirus pandemic having heavily impacted the UK business landscape, and disrupting operations worldwide, many companies are still fighting to survive this crisis, whilst thinking about 'what next?'.

Whilst the vaccine roll-out is underway, coronavirus cases remain high with the development of new strains. As individuals await their turn to be vaccinated, test and trace will remain a vital component of the government’s strategy to keeping people safe and containing the spread of the virus. Join Tony Danker (Director-General, CBI), Baroness Dido Harding (Head of NHS Test and Trace & Chair of the National Institute for Health Protection), and Eddie Fellows (Chief Executive Officer, Smurfit Kappa, UK & Ireland), for a discussion on the continued role of testing and tracing as we vaccinate the population and what businesses need to know, including:

  • An update on how NHS Test and Trace has responded to the latest developments in new strains and vaccine deployment
  • Insights on how businesses, like Smurfit Kappa, have worked with employees to introduce workplace testing
  • The government’s vision for test and trace as restrictions gradually unwind in the months ahead


  • Tony Danker, Director-General, CBI
  • Baroness Dido Harding, Head of NHS Test and Trace
