COVID-19 Policy

Policy brief & purpose

This company policy includes the measures we are actively taking to mitigate the spread of coronavirus. You are kindly requested to follow all these rules diligently, to sustain a healthy and safe workplace in this unique environment. It’s important that we all respond responsibly and transparently to these health precautions. We assure you that we will always treat your private health and personal data with high confidentiality and sensitivity.

This coronavirus (COVID-19) company policy is susceptible to changes with the introduction of additional governmental guidelines. The health, safety and well-being of our clients and employees remains paramount.

Changes to our working practices 

We continue to take steps to protect our workforce and clients.

  • All work trips and events will be cancelled/postponed until further notice.

  • In-person meetings should be done virtually where possible, especially with non-company parties (e.g. candidate interviews and partners).

  • All employees should inform their line managers or supervisor of any pre-existing medical conditions (e.g. asthma, diabetes, heart disease, etc.) that may exacerbate the effects of COVID-19. 

The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus. PHE recommends that the best way to reduce any risk of infection is good basic hygiene and avoiding direct or close contact (closer than two metres) with any potentially infected person to help prevent people from catching and spreading COVID-19:  

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze, dispose of used tissues straight away.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water often – use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.   

  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell  

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces  

  • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean 

  • Open the windows regularly to ensure open ventilation.

We are adopting a ‘no physical contact policy’ e.g. hand-shaking – all employees and workers are aware of this.

Particular attention is being paid to office cleaning, and in particular cleaning common surfaces with disinfectant/ anti-bacterial wipes e.g. door handles, handrails etc.

All offices are arranged according to a 2m social distance, with clear signage throughout. Hand sanitiser is provided throughout.

This policy has been created following government guidelines.
