Nexia Tanzania, like many other organisations around the world have been monitoring the impact of the COVID-19 Corona virus on our business and that of our clients.There is no doubt that the impact of the virus has placed us all in unchartered territory and in a place where it is not business as usual. To this end, we have put a number of precautionary measures in place to mitigate the impact of the virus.
The wellbeing of our employees, clients and stakeholders is critical to us as a firm. While we are closely monitoring the onset of this pandemic and have taken note of the advice of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and other organisations, we have to date taken the following precautionary measures:
NEXIA TANZANIA TEAMS
An awareness, education and information campaign has been developed and regular communication is being shared with a view to empowering our employees
Our office is equipped with sufficient soap and hand sanitizer and all surfaces are regularly cleaned with appropriate disinfectant.
Physical contact is discouraged, while social distancing is encouraged
None of our team members are allowed to embark on international air travel for business purposes. As far as domestic air travel is concerned, this is discouraged and limited to extremely essential travel. We are encouraging the use of technology for meetings etc.
All team members returning after international travel in the past 21 days will be required to self-isolate and will be required to undergo a test for the virus upon their return.
An Employee Assistance Programme is in place for team members who know or suspect that they may have been in contact with an infected person
OUR CLIENTS AND STAKEHOLDERS
Our client facing teams are equipped with adequate and appropriate technology, including tele and video conferencing, to ensure they can continue to work effectively.
