I am fortunate to not only have a job in the current climate, but am paid decently well. However, I am the newest employee in the "team" and about to complete week 4. I work for a relatively decent size company which likely does not want the bad pr of layoffs. That may change.
We are in week 2 of our mandated "work from home". Currently, I've been left a bit out in left field without much communication from my team. I've been teamed with the second newest member of the team.
I feel the mandated quarantine is getting of many of my coworkers. I know my manager generally winds up working weekends as well.
How do I volunteer/avail myself to new projects and/or help my colleagues with their tasks without risking agitating my manager and/or coworkers? Most of our communication is via skype/email.
