Queue Wisely Predicted! Largest Employers In Gibraltar Adopt A Working From Home Policy
Updated: Mar 14, 2020
10 days ago Gibraltar saw its first confirmed case of Coronavirus - COVID-19. We asked the question "what employers in Gibraltar would do to contain the spread of the virus".
In the last two days three of the biggest employers in Gibraltar; BetVictor, William Hill, Kindred and GVC have all adopted remote working protocols for cross frontier workers. They have decided to take additional measures to help to contain the spread of the virus, asking all Spanish residents to work from home and stop all business travel with immediate effect.
What this shows is the biggest employers on the Rock are actually leading the UK and being pro-active rather than reactive to the situation. Both Gibraltar and these companies can demonstrate in an online world we can stand in solidarity against what the World Health Organisation have declared as a pandemic.
You have to respect the professionalism that is being demonstrated. While some of the media seem more concerned with scare-mongering, these companies have put measures in place to reduce footfall across the border and actively do their part to decrease the risk of the virus entering Gibraltar.
