To our employees

  • We ask most employees to work from home during this period. However, some must be available on campus, since we do not close completely. The leaders organize the necessary presence in both Molde and Kristiansund, possibly in the form of shifts.
  • We expect that most people will now cope with a rapid transition to digital teaching and work from home. For questions; contact or your manager.
  • Take care of yourself. We hope everyone can be safely back on campus in mid-April 😊
