We will also be enforcing specific policies around off-site work for certain back-office functions in order to ensure continued and timely accounting and payroll functions. We want to make sure that our Team and our suppliers don’t experience any delays in pay. For all other functions, please consult with your manager to determine whether you should be working from home or on site. If your presence is required at work, please follow all precautions as outlined in the guidance that has been provided. If you are working from home, please stay in regular contact with your manager to align on priorities and work activities.
