Inspiring Impact Y&H: Topic 3 – Acting for impact – Working practices and organisational culture

Date: 6th October 2020
Time: 10:00am – 11:30am 
Please register for the webinar here.

This is the third session in a 3 part series of online workshops about impact management for VCSE sector organisations from the Yorkshire, Humber and Lincolnshire regions of England.

The series is being run by Inspiring Impact delivery partner SVUK in collaboration with our Inspiring Impact Regional Partners for the Yorkshire, Humber and Lincolnshire regions: Social Value Engine, and SEYH (Social Enterprise Yorkshire and Humber).

This session will focus on ‘Acting for impact – Working practices and organisational culture’.

In the first session we looked at the importance of data for decision making. 

In the second session, we looked at different data gathering methods, and approaches. 

In this final session, we will discuss how to embed impact practice into our organisations as a core part of how we manage our activities.   During a year of extreme and fast paced change all of our organisations have had to adjust in many different ways.

This session will look at our organisational working practices, with practical case study examples from organisations about their own impact management practice, the challenges organisations have faced and how they have overcome these, and opportunities and benefits that have been discovered through this practice.

This session will be include discussion on:

  • engaging our different stakeholder groups to own and be a part of our impact management
  • developing, or improving our relationships with different partners using our impact data
  • a learning culture: looking at understanding our impact and using this data as a core part of continuous improvement
  • an accountability culture: embracing being accountable for the impact that we have in peoples lives

    The session will be 1 hour 30 mins long and involve group discussions, resource sharing and action planning.

    This is the final session in the series. 

The session will be run through Zoom, and registration is through the below link:

CV19 – Furlough leave explained

CV19 – Furlough leave explained

Furlough leave and the 80% wage recovery scheme

The scheme will enable businesses to recover 80% of wage costs (or a maximum of £2,500 per month) for employees on ‘furlough leave’ – This is new in the wake of CV19 and the government will reimburse companies. This is for employers who might have otherwise implemented redundancies, lay-off, unpaid leave or other measures for their employees.

UK businesses are eligible to claim under the scheme. Employees will be covered, but not other workers ie Freelancers or the self-employed. (The government is working on this and is looking to announce something in the w/c 23rd March)

This will be available from March 1st for 3 months but how this is to be accessed is still in the works. It will be reviewed and could be extended depending how the situation develops.

Do employers have to make up the extra 20%?

No, they do not. Some employers may voluntarily bridge this gap, while others may not be able to. This just needs to be made clear to all employees concerned. Bear in mind that if you do this for one employee you ahve to do it for the rest on grounds of potential accusations of discrimination or favouritism.

Will employee’s benefits continue? 

Yes, the person will continue to accrue holiday during this time and will be entitled to all other benefits such as pension.  It is unclear what the 80% will include but it is likely that it will include for essential costly benefits such as pension.  

Can my employees work even from home and still be classed as a furlough worker?

No.  The only way you can access this assistance is if your employee is doing no work whatsoever and has agreed to go on furlough leave.  

How do I access the scheme?  

You must get permission from the employee – this is not something you can force upon them, a letter needs to be sent.  Once signed by them, you can then submit information to HMRC but details are unavailable just yet.  

Even with the furlough situation, you may not start to receive funding just yet.  Therefore, you may need to ask for this initial couple of weeks for people to use holiday and maybe take unpaid leave.
