IT departments around the world are working at full speed to ensure a fully functioning home office. Local colleagues are stepping in for those who are no longer able to travel to project locations from abroad. Others are taking on responsibility to keep those plants running that cannot be shut down or paused. COVID-19 greatly affected the way we work and taught us to be #strongertogether. We asked our employees: How does your working day look like during the pandemic and what challenges do you currently face?
We received answers from all around the world. Employees from different thyssenkrupp locations described their current work situation and told us how they experience the Corona pandemic. From creative solutions to support across continents – this is how our colleagues are dealing with the current situation.
