    DescriptionWHAT does an enforced stretch of social distancing and remote working mean for the future economy of Scotland?

    For hospitality, retail and the wider experience economy the challenges are already abundantly clear, with “footfall” businesses fighting for survival, if they haven’t already conceded defeat.

    Manufacturing firms face concerns about working practices, supply chains and customer demand, but it remains possible for most to operate and even, in some cases, to thrive. Organisations in the service, public, education, and charity sectors have shown remarkable resilience through an extended period of remote working, with surveys reflecting a desire among employees for that solution to form part of future working patterns.
