Regular communication with all our stakeholders will be a key priority for the foreseeable future.



1. CO-ORDINATED BUSINESS CONTINUITY & RAPID RESPONSE TEAM

3. SAFETY OF OUR EMPLOYEES AND CLIENTS

• We have implemented increased preventive hygiene measures across our local offices ensuring environmental cleaning plus ensuring staff awareness of the importance of respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene – this is to protect our business critical employees that cannot perform their job functions remotely, for the time being.
• Employees are encouraged to report if they feel unwell or if they suspect any possible exposure to the virus, whether within the workplace or outside. Any employees arriving at work with symptoms of acute respiratory illness (fever, cough, shortness of breath), or those developing during the workday, will be separated from other employees immediately, and sent home.
• All Business travel has been restricted internationally and only business critical engagements locally in South Africa will be permitted.
• A 14-day quarantine and remote work requirement is in place for any employee who has visited high risk areas as well as for any employee who may have come in contact with another person who has visited such high-risk areas within the past 14 days.
• Resourcing plans have been implemented to address any potential disruption e.g. flexible or home-working arrangements, splitting of teams or cross-training of staff who perform business critical functions.

As we continue to monitor the ongoing developments related to COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus), our priorities are the safety of our employees and clients, and the continuity of our business operations.

We thank you for your continued trust and business.
