Many places all over the world are currently in self-isolation mode in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In New Zealand, lock down started on Thursday March 26, which means that some people are able to work from home. At OptimalBI, we are working from home and on the whole that means continuing with what we were doing in the office but away from our office’s coffee machine.
However some of us have had projects put on hold or are waiting on customers to sort out remote access. Whatever camp you are in, once your work hours are done for the day, you are still at home and although it may be great at the start for some people this is going to be ongoing for quite some time.
