Our number one priority from the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic has been everybody’s safety. That’s our clients, and candidates and employees. Here’s what steps we’ve taken and how we’ve been adapting to the situation:
Rolled out remote recruiting across the business so all our consultants are interviewing and assessing the needs of candidates virtually and safely from home.
Consistently communicating with and briefing our workers so they understand the exact hygiene rules and two-metre social distancing regulations they must follow in the workplace. We have also issued numerous medical questionnaires to ensure workers categorised as vulnerable are quickly identified.
Advising workers to inform us straight away if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 or live with anyone who has symptoms. This is so we can ensure they don’t go to work and place themselves into self-isolation.
Setting up a free worker support line (this was set up pre-COVID-19) so they can discuss any issues they may have e.g. if they’re anxious or scared about attending work, worried about money concerns etc.
