COVID-19: Management Update
The Board continues to monitor the current COVID-19 situation and update action plans daily.
Safety is our Priority
Throughout the current pandemic the priorities have been to:
- Protect the health and well-being of our employees and customers;
- Provide ongoing support to our customers, especially where we are providing essential security and safety;
- Manage our business for the long term by taking prudent short-term actions and maintaining capability.
Open for Business
Management has worked hard to ensure we have been able to provide all essential services to all of our customers throughout the current pandemic. We are proud of how the Synectics team has responded to support customers, despite the significant disruption to many operations over recent months.
The Company's UK operating sites are open and ‘COVID-19 Secure for 2020’ following formal risk assessment processes at each site. International offices are also open and following similar risk assessment and management processes, adapted as necessary, to comply with local government regulations and guidance.
However, due to local restrictions, the Synectics US office in California is temporarily closed.
A growing range of remote capabilities has enabled us to create new and innovative ways of delivering customer projects and providing customer support. These new ways of working have also enabled many of our employees to work from home.
Ready for the Future
The Company is currently making further arrangements to ensure that workplaces are safe for the planned return of many more of our staff over the next few months. This will allow us to plan a gradual and safe return to work for many of our people as we continue to invest in our products, technology, service and support for customers around the world.
