A few weeks ago, the Belgian COVID-19 Consultation Committee announced their Summer Plan.
Last week it was confirmed that the COVID-19 numbers are well enough to start the next phase of this plan on 28/06/2021.
Some additional relaxations of the measures have been announced, including the stipulation that telework will no longer be mandatory. It is important for the continuity of operations, and the well-being of the people that we can again meet each other face to face in the office.
At the same time, EML is aiming for a good balance between working from the office and working from home contributing to a better work / life balance for the employees. This is also in accordance with SDG 3 – Good Health & Well-being that EML is working towards.
Therefore, EML has decided that all staff can remain teleworking with a maximum of 2 days per week from Jun 28th onwards.
Of course, when colleagues work from the office, the company will continue to provide all measures to ensure their safety (hand gels, mouth masks, spacing between desks, etc.).
