With the impact of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak being felt by businesses around the world, we are writing to update you on preparations we are taking for the potential implications of this significant global challenge.
Preparing to ensure business continuity in all scenarios, including during situations like pandemics, is an activity Tensar take extremely seriously.
We have multiple locations within the Eastern Hemisphere including three manufacturing facilities. Within each of our locations, where possible, we will provide remote working and access to all our systems, which allows us to react to and mitigate the risk of spread of the virus.
Our leadership team are currently meeting daily to review the situation to allow us to put in place specific measures required to manage the situation. Our current position is as follows:
Wherever possible, we are offering client meetings to be “online” rather than face-to-face and avoiding any physical contact, such as handshakes in any meetings that continue on a face-to-face basis.
We have implemented a ‘pilot’ work from home scheme to support social distancing which means different departments will work from home on set days. This is a tactic we’ve deployed to enhance our social distancing but also allow for business continuity.
We are following all government guidelines with respect to international travel.
We are suspending conferences and large internal meetings taking place in March and April that require travel.
Colleagues returning from travel, either business or personal, from a high-risk area are being asked to work from home for 14 days irrespective of symptoms.
We do not currently foresee any impact on the continuity of our service, but should the situation change we will notify you immediately. Although we believe the actions we have put in place are appropriate for the current levels of risk, they are in constant review.
We will be in contact as the situation evolves.
