The Chief Executive Officer of the LEGO Group, Niels B. Christiansen recently commented on their office space usage and which employees have been allowed to come back into the office following the lifting of lockdown measures around the world.
“Our Lego designers simply must be in the office,” CEO Niels B Christiansen said in an interview with Bloomberg. “They need to be where they have access to all the material they need for the creative process, including the Lego bricks.”
The CEO also shared that administrative staff are being asked to work from home, to make more space for the designers, due to social distancing measures.
The interview also revealed that some non-office workers have been allowed to return such as factory workers, who because of the safety measures the LEGO Group invested in, have resumed operation at full pace.
This interview somewhat harkens back to the CEO’s open letter to employees, echoing the desire to keep them safe until the situation improves. Those working at the company don’t seem to mind though, with satisfaction levels beating that of 2019.
