Katie’s experience in a Covid-secure workplace
‘I feel really safe coming into the office, definitely.’
Hi! I’m Katie, I’m a Contact Centre Apprentice in Livingston and I joined the team in 2019.
I did have a few concerns; I felt really anxious about coming back into office, purely because of the fact there was loads of people in. Even it was a big office it was really hard to social distance, but Sky had made me feel really safe and supported.
A lot of people are now working from home and it just makes it a lot easier to social distance in the office now, keeping ourselves safe. In the office, we’ve got lots of support – such as mask disposal points, we’ve got hand sanitizer stations everywhere. Even from managers; we can’t get the same support on site from them as they’re working from home, but it’s all done virtually.
In the office, we also have a covid officer walking about, just to ensure social distance is going about. Any concerns, you have someone to speak to there. I do feel safe coming in and we’ve got lots of things to keep us safe – the big one being that the vast majority of the office are now working from home.
We’ve got one way systems to follow so we don’t end up crashing into each other and we’ve got our mass disposals, you can ask if you’ve forgotten one or if we need to change one. We’ve got hand sanitiser to keep washing our hands wherever we go. Even in restaurants we’ve got the social distancing and to follow.
I feel really safe coming into office, definitely.
