Walmart’s Emergency Operation Center has been operating on high-alert since the pandemic started, and many of its employees are now working from home:
“A typical day at the EOC, if there is such a thing, associates will get about 250 calls, ranging from questions about HR protocols to associate health concerns to anticipated weather issues. But this isn’t a typical day. These aren’t typical days. Typical now for the EOC is a more virtual world, with associates like Lucas and others who would be at the EOC nerve center at the Home Office now scattered to their very own home offices.”
