Pension professionals show us their new 'work colleagues' as their turn their homes into offices.
With the UK now in lockdown, large volumes of people are working from home in self-isolation.
PP continues to keep you up-to-date with the latest Covid-19 news via our live blog here.
In these uncertain times, for some light-hearted fun, fellow Incisive Media publication CRN published photos of their readers' pets and PP have now done the same. We asked industry experts to send us some snaps of their pets either helping or hindering them as they turn their dining tables into desks.
