That's a bit silly. I assume much of this can be done remotely anyways. But if they take the proper precautions...having IT set everything up shouldn't be an issue. And then have 1-2 people there for any hardware issues. But hey...if those people don't want to make sure the technology is working properly and secure...that's up to them.
Also...to nitpick...they aren't "their employees"...right? That seems like a strange way to word that. I am not in IT...but Information Systems is a separate department...so I can't imagine they report to the GM.
Looks like some of the coaches and GMS that are stuck in their ways are using the media to complain like they did with FA. Lol. They need to quit crying and do their jobs. Everyone has adjusted to working at home. They should too.
