Hey everybody, welcome to the end of 2021 (almost). No doubt it’s a year we’ll never forget, for many and varied reasons!

We are celebrating the end of year, with the biggest bumper issue we’ve ever produced! Our pages are jammed with loads of helpful info to help you get back into the swing of working after such a disrupted year; including how you can legally tackle the tricky new operational processes that COVID-19 has created.

Take a stroll through the following pages, and let us know what you think or if you have any ideas to contribute. You can email your feedback and suggestions 24/7 to [email protected] – we look forward to hearing from you.

From my FITREC family, I wish you and yours a joyous, peaceful and COVID-free Christmas and new year. We look forward to supporting you, your career and your business in 2022. Stay safe.
