Omnicom Group’s CEO has warned its staff of separating work and home life as COVID-19 fuses the two.
In an internal memo sent to thousands of employees around the world, John Wren said “breaks and sign-off times become critical, especially for people doing double-duty caring for a child or relative.”
He said: “In these uncertain times, compassion for one another is critical and I urge everyone to remain conscious of their work/life balance. When your office becomes your home, it can be harder to step away from your computer and have an official end to the workday.”
Wren thanked those who have taken it upon themselves to launch opportunities for run and relaxation, such as online yoga classes and virtual celebrations.
The CEO noted some workers in markets around the other side of the world have already gone back to the office.
