IPG agency person here. We’ve gone to HR and even over their heads when we got no answers - East Coast GM and even CEO. All we got was “monitoring the situation.” Agencies need to do better.

Our NY office is testing the WFH today but the main hub in LA where finance, payroll, leadership, HR and apparently lack of common sense is monitoring the situation. #itonlytakes1 Hell, we even got clients visiting the office today.

Why not (1) air on the side of caution and (2) get the full scope if this will be successful company wide? The “hey if you don’t feel well stay home, just wash your hands and tell your “friends” not to come to the office isn’t enough.” We are working with people who won’t check to see if the automated toilet flushes it all before leaving it, I doubt they washing hands for 20s. Stay safe everyone! I gotta make the donuts so off to work ✌🏼as it looks like I won’t have much 401k left

Have you tried speaking to HR? I think you’re preaching to the choir. I understand you’re concerned and stressed, but let’s let our leaders know we need a plan.

Well we’re already WFH. But the number of posts I see here where agencies aren’t taking it seriously pisses me off

Hi All, I have a fully furnished, sun soaked, art-filled 1 BR apartment available for month-to-month rental indefinitely. The space is located right in the heart of Union Square. With noise insulated windows and a tree-lined view, the apartment gets great privacy. I am asking for $2k/month (which is significantly lower than what I pay), but am flexible depending on interest. Building: full service, door man building with elevators and laundry. (Continued in comments)
