“As a precaution, all colleagues who have been working at 700 Bourke Street over the past fortnight are asked to work from home for the next two weeks.
“Given we plan to relocate colleagues from 700 Bourke Street to 500 Bourke Street from Monday, 13 July, we strongly encourage all colleagues planning to work from 700 Bourke Street this week to instead work from home.”
The bank notified staff last week that from July 14 it would indefinitely stop using its Docklands offices at 700 Bourke Street and 800 Bourke Street, known as the Rubik’s Cube due to its colourful exterior. The two buildings house a large proportion of NAB’s 34,000-strong workforce.
About 32,000 of the bank’s staff have been working from home, a bank spokesman said.
In March, a NAB employee in Melbourne who “falsified” a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, sparking the evacuation of its offices last week, was sacked.
