The management of the 112 Ukraine TV channel took the decision to minimize the number of employees simultaneously in the office, and to air guests and experts via video communication systems.
Such measures will be introduced since March 23, due to the threat of COVID-19 transmission.
One TV-presenter shall work from studio, and the format of the talk show will be changed until the end of quarantine.
Note that in the studio of the 112 Ukraine TV Channel the guests are provided with the opportunity to perform in a separate, fully robotic studio without contacting the TV-presenters.
Thus, the 112 Ukraine TV channel is the first among all Ukrainian TV-channels to switch to remote mode, introducing work-from-home policy.
We urge our colleagues to follow the example, not endanger their employees and convey to the viewers that they also stay at home - this is the only right decision during quarantine.
The remote mode of operation will not affect the operational efficiency of the TV channel, we will broadcast all the messages of state authorities and broadcast all the information about the coronavirus infection pandemic, as well as all the news of the political, economic, cultural and social life of Ukraine and the world.
Online editions of 112.ua and 112.International have been working remotely since last week. Employees were provided with technical tools that allow them updating the news feed on the site from home, as well as supporting Youtube and Facebook broadcasts.
Also, the most operative and short summaries of the situation in the country and the world are published in the Telegram channel 112.
“We will continue informing our audience with the latest news, and the quarantine mode will not affect the objectivity and speed of the materials coming.
Besides, our social responsibility is to convey to the population that it is necessary to reduce physical contacts, even if this brings inconvenience.
The decision to reformat the channel was not easy for us. But we urge all viewers to stay home, because this is the only way to slow down the spread of coronavirus, and set an example ourselves,” - Yegor Benkendorf, CEO of the 112 Ukraine TV Channel, said.
In addition, the 112 Ukraine TV channel responded to the proposal of President Volodymyr Zelensky and next week shall broadcast video lessons on various subjects of the school curriculum for grades 5-11.
