Dear University of Glasgow,

I would like to request information regarding support for staff during the pandemic. Specifically, I'd like information on the following:
1. How many staff were furloughed in 2020? (total number)
2. What percentage of total employees were put on furlough?
3. Has your organisation offered any additional paid time off for employees, and if so, how much?
4. Has your organisation offered any additional financial support to employees, and if so, how much?
5. Has your organisation offered any further wellbeing initiatives for staff?

I'd be most grateful if you would consider this request.

Yours faithfully,

C. Williamson
