Each Ministry or organisation is required to activate the Business Continuity Plan protocol immediately. The Minister at the Prime Minister's Office and Second Minister of Finance and Economy said all officers and staff are required to Work From Home, except for essential workers. The activation of Business Continuity Plan must be implemented without affecting their respective organisations functions or core services.
For example, an organisation or department with 100 employees which have identified 20 essential workers to be on-site, namely Work From Office, while the rest 80 people can carry out their works remotely, namely Work From Home. In this scenario, the Work From Office employees must be divided into two teams. They are to work from different places or buildings without physical communications between both teams. If team A is set at A building or location, B team will work at a different location. Another set of example is in the case of numerous number of essential workers. The Work From Office team must be divided into 3 or 4 teams and allocated at different locations without physical communication. As an alternative, the teams can work in the office on a rotating basis according to a set schedule. The schedule will be set by the respective Head of Department. Head of Unit must identified essential workers based on their duties and responsibilities and must be presented for the approval of the respective Head of Department or Organisation for them to be arranged to Work from the Office. Each Head of Department or Organisation is responsible for the deliverables required from the teams during the Work From Home period. Steps will be taken to ensure the function and delivery of services is not disrupted.
