As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation escalated alarmingly into a critical phase globally, companies have had to react intelligently and acutely in order to sustain and most importantly, ensure the safety and well-being of their employees.
As part of our “BDO Cares” initiative, BDO in Cambodia has therefore taken the following precautionary steps to ensure the safety and well-being of both employees and clients, whilst maintaining the same level of exceptional client service expected of us.
BDO in Cambodia was agile in reacting to the “new normal” by ensuring that all of our employees were digitally enabled to work remotely. For our employees working in the office, the firm implemented vigorous SOPs to prevent any potential spread, some of which include:
* Mandatory daily temperature checks
* Practicing social or physical distancing Teleconferencing and/ or virtual meetings to be used in place of face-to-face meetings
* Face masks worn at all times around the office Office cleaning on a daily basis Constant reminders to employees via email and videos about the importance of practicing good personal hygiene, as well as providing hand sanitisers, face masks and soaps in our office
Another priority of our firm is to ensure that employees and clients are kept informed. Our headquarters in Malaysia launched a “Covid-19 Digital Hub” to further assure our employees and clients that we are constantly monitoring the situation and to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information at hand in these unprecedented times. In addition, our global office (BDO International) also launched a “Covid-19 Crisis Hub” which contains regularly updated guidance and advice for businesses and individuals around the world.
As we continue to live in what is deemed a new normal, BDO’s priority will always be the safety of its employees and clients. We will continue to monitor and adapt our approach to ensure the necessary precautions are taken.
