For the benefit of our clients and employees, we are publishing our Covid-19 Response on this page and will continue to review and update this information.
Last Reviewed: June 2022
We continue to consider what we have learned over the past couple of years and the digital nature of our operations. We take into account that our employees work remotely, in geographically separate locations. We also consider the continued impact of the virus on our customers, current Government guidelines and the national vaccine programme.
As a responsible company, we will continually review the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak in order to assess business risks and adjust our operating procedures to provide the safest continuity of service. The safety and well-being of our employees and clients remains our top priority and our policy is to follow official HM Government advice and guidelines, as a minimum.
We have taken the following actions to reduce the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak and to ensure that we are able to meet our contractual commitments.
- We temporarily suspended all face-to-face meetings to avoid team members being in close contact with one another. We have now eased this restriction on a needs must basis and continue to limit the number of staff attending such meetings.
- Client site visits are also limited to exceptional circumstances, only, with the vast majority of work and meetings being conducted remotely.
- We have mobilised our near-shore partner resources to augment our internal development team, in the event that these permanent team members are re-deployed to client projects or are indisposed due to illness.
- The Placecube technical team is implementing additional working practices to enable it to further reduce any dependency on individuals, making use of our full capability to draw on a pool of resources to fulfil our obligations.
- Our continuous resource planning and weekly review meetings include additional planning for sickness contingency.
- In the event that we identify a risk to the delivery of the services we provide to any client; we will discuss the likely impact and changes with the client at the first available opportunity. We recognise that in some circumstances it may be necessary to reprioritise our workload in order to provide increased support to clients who use our services in response to the current situation although we will endeavour to ensure no client services are unduly affected.
Our actions, alongside those of our clients and partners have ensured we have suffered no material impact upon our business. That said, we remain sensitive and not complacent.
Should there be any concerns or advice required by clients or employees they should contact Jenny Dias (COO on firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jason Fahy (CEO on email@example.com).
