Agile/Remote Working (Coronavirus)Watch
- Political Ambassador
Has your firm allowed/encouraged/enforced remote working amid the current situation? If so, when did they start doing this and have you faced any stigma for expressing a desire to do so? If your firm has not adopted these measures, what reasons have they given for this? Do they intend to continue operating as normal indefinitely?
I understand if you don't want to mention the names of your employers but if you would be happy to do this (fairly anonymous forum after all), it would be great for myself and anyone else who may be wondering the same thing. After all, even if the situation improves over the summer, we may see a similar (although hopefully less panicked) situation next winter.

As of Monday all of our UK buildings are shut apart from the data centre (which has very restricted access), HQ and one other.

Employer has been ramping up the wellbeing comms, we have daily chats booked for our team that you can join if you want.
