As a global company, Sagitec is closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19), along with the rest of the World. We are following guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and local health officials. Our top priorities are to protect the health and safety of our clients, employees, and their families, and to ensure the continuity of our business and services.
Sagitec has implemented the following actions as part of our Pandemic Continuity Operations Plan to help contain the spread of the infection and ensure minimal disruption to our business and services:
- Suspend non-essential business travel for Sagitec employees for at least the next two weeks – and reevaluate on a weekly basis.
- Ask Sagitec employees to report all international travel for themselves and members of their household to Human Resources and follow guidelines for returning to work.
- Encourage Sagitec employees to conduct meetings via teleconference for at least the next two weeks – and reevaluate on a weekly basis.
- Equip Sagitec employees to work from home, if necessary, making arrangements in cooperation with their manager based on project needs – and reevaluate on a weekly basis.
- Assess technology and infrastructure to ensure we are ready to support business continuity as more Sagitec employees begin working from home.
- Review cross-training needs and ensure adequate staffing and service for all clients.
- Enhance cleaning and sanitization protocols throughout our locations, following guidance from the CDC, WHO, and local health authorities.
- Build awareness of recommended hygiene practices Sagitec employees should follow to protect themselves and others:
- Stay home if you are feeling ill.
- Avoid contact with others who are ill.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue and dispose of the tissue in the trash.
- If you are concerned about your health, contact your doctor – especially if you are experiencing symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, high fever, and shortness of breath.
The health and well-being of our clients, employees, and their families remain top of mind. We will continue to monitor updates and proactively prepare to take further steps as the situation develops. On behalf of Sagitec, thank you for your continued engagement and cooperation.
