My employer has instituted a policy whereby access to github is blocked at the network level. So if you attempt to go there using http/s its blocked, regardless of what you are accessing. This was done as a result of unauthorised sharing of code.

Now there is a process of getting exceptions to this policy by completing a form. I am wondering why you would say its essential to have github access even without using it as a repo. We do use 3rd party components hosted on github.

This question would not be permitted. It would likely be closed as off-topic as it relates to your career and workplace or as opinion-based as we cannot tell you why you need access to GitHub in order to do your job. You know what your work is and should be able to provide a justification for why you need an exception to the block.
