    Working from home has become widespread since restrictions to control Covid-19 were introduced in the UK. This has meant a major shift for individuals and organisations. Some have found it a positive experience. Others have struggled to adjust to new environments and work patterns. As lockdown measures are relaxed, homeworking is expected to continue making it the ‘new normal’ for many. THE SHARE APPROACH SHARE is a psychologically informed approach designed to capture the essential elements for making homeworking a success for both employees and employers. This document details the practical steps and considerations needed to create healthy, sustainable homeworking conditions. The five components of SHARE are: 1. Safe homeworking: Duty of care and setting up the workspace. 2. Help yourself and others: Communicating and meeting needs. 3. Adapt to change: Diverse home situations and styles of the ‘new normal’. 4. Relieve the pressure: Maintaining work-life balance with a flexible approach. 5. Evaluate: Review the situation regularly to ensure ongoing success. It is important that employers and employees work together to ensure successful homeworking. The following guidelines are based on an approach of open communication and shared commitment to homeworking during the pandemic and beyond
