Big Businesses Move to Remote Working in Light of Coronavirus

After talking to a dear friend of ours in China about how he and his family are doing with the concerns and spread of the Coronavirus, we learned that his company and many others are trying to strategize how to have all employees work from home. Remote working in light of coronavirus seems like a wise strategy in affected regions.

Bloomberg News reported last week that, “Starbucks Corp., KFC, Pizza Hut and office-sharing company WeWork are shutting locations in China, while Facebook Inc., Nissan Motor Co. and other companies enact measures to shield employees in areas hardest hit by a deadly viral outbreak.

WeWork said Tuesday it is temporarily closing 55 offices across China and encouraging employees to work from home or in private rooms. Global banks from Credit Suisse Group to Morgan Stanley are telling Hong Kong staff to work from home for two weeks. Facebook employees based in China, and those who recently returned from trips to the country, are also being told to work from home, people familiar with the matter said.”
