Coronavirus BRIEFING

WPP to Pay Annual Bonuses Despite COVID-19 and Cut Offices By Up to 20 Percent

It is absolutely clear that the way we use our space going forward is going to change. It’s going to be much more of a collaborative space, as opposed to people sitting at desks answering emails, which people can do as easily at home as they can at the office...We won’t expect people to be in the office for five days a week, but equally it won’t be zero either; it will be somewhere in between.

John Rogers, CFO of advertising agency WPP, in comments to securities analysts after the agency reported Q3 results, as reported by MM&M and the UK’s Campaign Live.
