Remote working and staggered working hours as a precautionary measure against coronavirus
As a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus, we are encouraging certain workers to work remotely, or for employees still commuting to work, to do so outside of peak rush hours.
We are implementing the following measures:
- To avoid public transport during peak rush hours, our staff will stagger their starting hours: with some starting earlier than usual, and others later than usual.
- Encouraging our staff to conduct online meetings instead of face-to-face meetings wherever practicable.
- Urging staff to wear masks, wash and sanitize their hands throughout the day.
For the time being, we would appreciate it if our partners could cooperate with us by opting for online meetings via Zoom or Skype where it is practical to do so.
Thank you for your cooperation.
