10 staff to work from home

10 staff have been directed to work from home from Monday, by direction of ViacomCBS.

Minimal staff required for broadcast will attend sites.

A Network 10 spokesperson told TV Tonight: “As a precautionary measure, ViacomCBS has asked that all employees work from home until further notice.

“To ensure our broadcast and critical commercial activities remain unaffected, a minimal number of Network 10 employees will continue to come into the office.

“The safety and well-being of our employees continues to be our number one priority.”

10 has already suspended studio audiences for The Project, Dancing with the Stars, Studio 10 and Australian Survivor: Reunion while The Amazing Race Australia has committed to domestic destinations.

Other productions such as intimate scenes for The Bachelor is less clear, while 10 is yet to advise about plans for Australian Survivor to film from April.

ViacomCBS’ direction is for all staff in Australia, UK, Europe, Middle East, Asia and USA.

Late last year 10 experienced a massive attack on its IT systems which entailed huge numbers of staff working from home -ironically, that has probably served as a dry run for the current situation.

Seven and ABC have also advised no studio audiences and changes to guest access.

Do you expect to work from home?

  1. Now is the perfect time to refresh their daily schedule with a soon to be captive audience. Give us The Price is Right US or something. General Hospital would be Great at 3.30 strait into Bold at 4.30.

  2. I’d say this will be the normal for us all over the next two weeks, with Telstra sending 20k to work from home – its good to see Ten ahead with this.
