Amid increasing cases of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) and its impact, the TDC Group of Companies has taken swift action to further discuss and address the illness in the workplace.
The executive directors and management team participated in an informational presentation about the epidemic, on Tuesday 3rd March 2020, which was facilitated by Dr. Hazel Laws, the Chief Medical Officer and Mr. Abdias Samuel, National Emergency and Disaster Management Agency (NEMA) Coordinator, who spoke extensively on the matter, providing accurate information, as well as, practical advice on how to deal with the infection.
The open forum included a question and answer session, where the leadership gained firsthand knowledge from the ‘experts’ who shared their concerns following reports that the virus had now reached the shores of neighbouring islands in the Caribbean region.
Immediately following the activity, a company wide plan is now in place to educate all staff, offering simple and useful guidelines on how to better safeguard themselves.
The approach forms part of an ongoing in-house human resource and health programme designed to equip employees with the understanding and skills that promote general well being and productivity.
