How the clocks turning back can impact staff

Workers within the UK likely woke up this morning feeling suspiciously refreshed. This is because today, Monday October, 26, 2020 is the start of the first working week since the clocks went back, giving the workforce seemingly one more hour in bed and plunging the UK into the start of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and the winter season.

Whilst the change, which inevitably takes place every year in October, may seem like a small one, it could well have a significant impact on the workforce for several reasons including energy levels, productivity and mental wellbeing.
