Like all global companies, we have been monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) as the situation evolves. The health and well-being of our people is top priority. Our HR and business leaders are updating colleagues on the latest health and travel guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO) and national governments according to areas of greatest impact. Our regional and country teams are prepared to execute Business Continuity Plans should they be necessary, including widespread flexible working and contingency planning as required. As the overall situation is fluid, it is too early to determine the impact.
We continue to be in close communication with our clients and have created this destination of resources to support businesses nationwide who are navigating the impacts of COVID-19 on their workforce. We will update these resources to provide you timely insights and guidance.
