For our teams out in the community we introduced anti-viral PPE and extra safety processes in line with government advice, plus extra vans so they could travel singly.
Our employees will continue to work from home where possible. We are Covid securing our offices and staff have been taken on a virtual tour to show them the new working environment. Our Colchester office is one of the first to implement the new safety measures and is being used as a module example for all of our other sites.
The new measures include a temperature check camera at the entrance of the building, hygiene stations, step and pull levers on the bottom of doors which can be opened by foot, social distancing signs on floor, one way staircases and desk seating will be two meters apart. We continue to follow government guidelines and work hard to ensure the safety of our staff.
To help our 6,000-strong workforce during these difficult times, we continue to offer employees loans, mental health support and a free employee assistance line providing counselling, financial advice, legal consultation and health advice.
