An estimated 1.3 million people (1.9% of the population) were experiencing self-reported long COVID as at October 2021. The prevalence and impact of long COVID is emerging as a significant concern and needs ongoing attention from people professionals.

It includes insights from individuals who have direct experience of the condition, as well as the views and learnings from HR, health professionals and managers on the measures that can best support people to manage their symptoms and stay in work.

The report offers recommendations for organisations on how to effectively support those with long COVID to return to, and stay in, work.
