As we are now over a month into our current remote working situation, we would just like to take the time to, firstly thank you all for your continued cooperation and collaboration with our teams, and secondly, update you with the latest situations from all of our office locations around the world.
We continue to closely monitor the evolving situation and follow the advice of the respective governments where we have office locations. Whilst we have not seen a negative impact due to our remote working, there are indicators that some of offices can be slowly opened again, but not in all locations. As we are an international company and have cross-border teams, we have set out below the current advice we are following in each country and
what that means for our daily working, so you know what to expect from your Tia teams.
In Denmark, where we have three offices, including our head office, the country has very slowly begun to open up after Easter. Nursery
schools and primary schools for young children have starting opening, which allows for more concentrated working from parents to those
young children. In addition, there has been a slight relaxing of the working from home advice, and as such we are reopening our Danish
offices gradually. The official government advice is still to work from home if possible and so we have limits to the number of employees
who can work from the office, in order to make sure that those who are in the office can work safely, and we have extra cleaning scheduled
for door handles etc. to help facilitate the gradual opening of the offices again.
Summary: No travel or face to face meetings, most employees working remotely, some can work from the offices.
In South Africa, all our employees are currently working from home as they are in the middle of a 21-day lockdown (until April 30th). They are
only permitted to leave their houses for food or for emergency supplies (medicines etc.) so obviously continue to work remotely.
Summary: No travel or face to face meetings and all employees working remotely.
In Lithuania there is no change to the official advice, and the office continues to remain closed (at least until April 27th) and everyone is
working from home.
Summary: No travel, face to face meetings, and all employees working remotely.
