For many French, the containment has been the synonym of a new life office... at home. Teleworking is becoming the norm, and the presence in the company, the exception ?
The time crowded public transport, the small coffee between colleagues, informal discussions in the corridors and meetings "face-to-face" would it be gone forever ? The Point gives the word to employees that tell the upheaval caused by the confinement and their new life in the office.

" From the first day of the confinement, the directors of the company have sent everyone home, with the exception of a few collaborators. All of my activities can be done at a distance, my job is to basically to prepare records, and to exchange telephone, telework, I was asked so no problem.

This reaction is completely counter-productive.
