RE: An Employer’s Guide on Working From Home (WFH) during COVID-19
In only a few months’ time, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has had a devastating economic, social, and health impact across the globe. Hundreds of thousands of lives have already been lost, and the end of this crisis is not yet in sight. From the outset, the Association of Tanzania Employers (ATE) has been working with our member companies across the country to assist them in managing workplace challenges of the COVID-19 crisis.
ATE will continue to provide support throughout this crisis. Our priorities throughout the crisis are: first to provide support to ensure the health and sustainability of the workforce and our communities; second to represent the interests and needs of business in crisis to Government, and third to support the business during this period with relevant information and services as well as opportunities for remote networking and engagement with peers as these alternative arrangements are becoming Universal.
ATE with the assistance from the International Labour Organization, Bureau for Employers’ Activities (ILO-ACT/EMP) has prepared a Working from Home (WFH) guide for employers This guide has been designed to help employers to respond to a ‘new normal’ that is changing day by day. Many companies are relying on ‘working from home’ arrangements for the first time. Some are thriving while others are struggling to adapt. We hope this guide can provide timely assistance.
ATE would like to thank the ILO for their assistance in developing this guide. For further information please contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org
