Report: German gov't considers delivering civil servants to home office due to energy crisis

(MENAFN) The German administration is looking for delivering civil servants to home office this winter because of the surging energy catastrophe, local media mentioned media on Tuesday.

In line with Business Insider, at a latest gathering of a federal ministry, one of the bids was an obligatory home office for civil servants and workers this winter, whereas bigger ministries have reportedly expressed objections to the programs.

One of the major objections was that there were not sufficient laptops as well as cell phones to prepare all civil servants.

At the gathering, cooling the rooms down to 19 degrees Celsius (around 66 F) was also talked about as an alternative, the news portal mentioned in a report.

If this is too cold for someone, they would be permitted to work from home.

The background to the strategies is a decree by Economics and Energy Minister Robert Habeck, which contains energy-saving indications in public buildings.
