Update on employer testing: what your 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?'.

Following government announcements to expand workplace and community testing, knowing how these regimes interact will be crucial alongside understanding the long term role for testing as we move from pandemic to living with COVID-19.

Join John Foster (Director of Policy and Communications, CBI), Caroline Makepeace (Deputy Director for Workplace Testing, DHSC), and Simon Rice-Birchall (Partner, Employment Law, Eversheds Sutherland) for an expert discussion, including:

  • An update on the schemes and support available to employers regarding workplace testing
  • Advice and guidance on how best to implement employee testing in your business
  • Insights on how to best manage testing programmes with employees to boost confidence and compliance


  • John Foster, Director of Policy and Communications, CBI
  • Caroline Makepeace, Deputy Director for Workplace Testing, DHSC

Replacing the Daily Coronavirus Webinars, our new bi-weekly broadcast, CBI @10am will help support you through the next phase, giving you expert insight and intelligence to continue adapting, and providing the guidance you need to restart and boost your business, and build resilience for the new normal.

Webinar recordings are made available on the same day of broadcast between 16:00 and 17:00. If you have signed up for the webinar, you will be sent a follow-up email with a link to the recording. You can also access all previous recordings on the CBI website.
