As lockdown begins to ease, here’s an update from NBS.
In recent months, here at NBS we have been working hard to understand how we can best support our colleagues in all locations through these unprecedented times, and in turn support our customers. NBS is continuing to operate under the new normal, but as the world slowly opens up, now is the time to provide a brief business update:
As a technology business, we were set-up to allow people to work remotely and to look after our people, we swiftly moved to a working-from-home approach. As a result, there will be no job losses within NBS as a result of COVID-19, and we continue to seek the best people tojoin us.
The past few months have shown how effective we can be when we’re spread out. For the rest of 2020, if they want to, all of our colleagues can work from home. Beyond this, to ensure people can continue to balance work and caring responsibilities, colleagues are able to work flexibly too.
For those keen to interact with colleagues in person, at an appropriate social distance, NBS will soon be opening up its HQ in Central Newcastle.
When we asked our colleagues about ideal future working arrangements, most people seem to favour a blended approach, combining being in the office and working remotely. We’re looking to make this happen.
Although normality is slowly returning, it is clear it will take some time before we are able to operate in the way we are used to. During this time, we are fully committed to both our colleagues, and customers to keep things business as usual.
