Statement regarding COVID-19

Mar 5, 2020 | News

Vaioni Group Limited takes any risk to the health of its employees and customers very seriously. We are monitoring the current outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will be regularly reviewing any potential impact to our customers. The leadership team is currently reviewing various strategies to minimise any risks to our people, operations and office locations. As part of our ongoing Business Continuity policy we already have various measures in place including a robust home working policy that will enable us to continue to provide support to our customers should the outbreak escalate, or there be a need for staff to self-isolate or not be able to travel into the office. 

The current situation is very fluid and we are reviewing our contingency plans on a regular basis in line with advice from the Government and the World Health Organisation. We will keep our customers informed through regular communications. From the 5th March we have cancelled all external non-essential face to face meetings to the end of March and where feasible we will be looking to arrange meetings via Microsoft Teams or audio conference. We are also restricting business travel outside of the UK.
