Many downtown W-B employees continue working remotely

June 19, 2020

Working from home is still strongly encouraged under Gov. Tom Wolf’s reopening plan and that’s what many office workers in downtown Wilkes-Barre will continue to do after Luzerne County enters the green phase Friday.

Berkshire Hathaway GUARD insurance Companies’ employees also continue to work remotely, except for a few essential staff, said spokeswoman Elizabeth Hartman.

“We have found that our employees are able to work remotely with the efficiency required to maintain service levels for our agents, policyholders and claimants,” Hartman said.

She said Berkshire Hathaway GUARD is taking a “gradual and cautious approach to returning to the office.”
