In light of the current situation, we want to say a few words to you. The spread of the Sars-CoV-2 virus affects us all. Fortunately, no cases of infection have been reported within our corporate group, which means we are not forced to shut down any of our branches.
Nonetheless, we want to take responsibility for our employees and their families, but also for all other individuals in our society, and do our part to ensure that our healthcare system can handle the impending crisis. It is up to all of us to actively fight the battle against the spread of this virus.
That is why we have decided that our 60 employees at the locations in Reutlingen, Berlin, and Tunis will gradually start working from home. In principle, this does not constitute a significant change, as we are already used to working together in a constructive manner across different locations, hold meetings via conference calls, and already have a suitable infrastructure in place. We also hope that these measures will help the people in our corporate group from a social point of view and allow them to better manage personal challenges (for example, the difficult childcare situation caused by the closure of nurseries and schools, or supporting affected family members).
Aside from our goal of safeguarding the health of our employees and their families, we also see it as our social obligation to do everything in our power to curb the transmission of the disease and protect those who urgently require medical support. At the same time, we want to encourage you to help slow the exponential spread of the virus. Together, we can minimise the risk of infection and fulfil our social responsibilities.
Together, we will master the situation!
