Country's largest mobile operator Grameenphone is encouraging a part of its team to work from home as a precaution against the possible outbreak of coronavirus.
GP's Head of External Communications Md. Hasan said, "Safety is our foremost concern; we have been preparing to keep our employees and associated business partners safe following the standard guideline provided by relevant authorities. We have initiated business contingency planning to protect our employees while ensuring service continuity for our valuable 76.5 million customers who need us most in this time of uncertainties."
"Employees engaged in roles that are not customer-facing have been encouraged to work from home," he added.
However, the mobile operator has asked its customer-facing employees to take the necessary safety measures and focus on providing services through digital technology, which limits their physical contacts and movement.
"We will assess the development and decide on the next action accordingly," Hasan said further.
