As COVID-19 grinds the world to a standstill, the majority of our workforce is adjusting to working from home, and acclimating to our new but temporary reality can prove to be difficult at the best of times.
With an added twist, many schools and childcare facilities across North America have shut down in an effort to flatten the curve and reduce the spread of the virus – leaving many of our team members balancing childcare and day-to-day work tasks.
To all the TC Energy parents out there, we know it’s hard and that some of you may be struggling with keeping your kids busy and managing your workload simultaneously. To help strike this balance, we’ve put together some tips for your consideration. We’d also encourage all our TC Energy employees, parents or not, to take advantage of flex or vacation days.
