Covid-19 Safety of our core staff, contractors and clients
Our priority is to our core staff, contractors and customers during this challenging time.
We are fully operational but working in a different way.
All employees are set up and working safely from home, although if you hear a child or dog in the background please understand our team are committed to our business as usual approach but have to work with their family in a way that is suitable for their lockdown process.
Working from home can be a challenging transition, so we’ve provided a variety of resource guides to help our employees continue to get the job done. We’re listing them here as well because at times like this, sharing insights and learning is so important.
Managing a Distributed Team
Being a People manager means providing a consistent and positive employee experience for everyone on your team, regardless of location.
So what changes when your team is fully distributed? The good news—not much! These pillars still apply whether you manage a distributed or co-located team.
Encouraging employees to work from home
In addition to the travel, event and visitor restrictions that we previously shared, today we provided additional guidance as we look to protect the health and safety of our workforce. We are strongly encouraging all employees and contractors globally to work from home if they’re able. Our goal is to lower the probability of the spread of the COVID-19 for us – and the world around us. We are operating out of an abundance of caution and the utmost dedication to keeping team healthy. We are working to make sure internal meetings, all hands, and other important tasks are optimised for remote participation.
While this is a big change for us, we have already been moving towards a more distributed workforce that’s increasingly remote. We provide a global service and we’re committed to enabling anyone, anywhere to work at Acumen Envision.
There are enormous transnational efforts underway to tackle this virus. As a global company with a global workforce, we want to do what we can to help the success of these multi-stakeholder containment efforts.
Temporarily suspending travel is an immediate and important step.
We want to thank our people, partners and customers for their patience and understanding.
