Coronavirus has leapt to over 85,000 confirmed cases (CNN), with countries such as South Korea, Iran, Hong Kong and South Korea reporting increasing numbers and a rising global death toll. As concerns of Coronavirus spreading quickly across the globe a number of companies have put risk management strategies into action.
It is important to review your business continuity plans and consider the new risks to your business, including your employees.
Twitter Inc is on the front foot managing the risks of a 5000 global workforce with concerns over the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Twitter has advised its almost 5,000 global employees to work from home. Twitter has also made it mandatory for employees in Hong Kong, Japan & South Korea to work from home. Square has also followed suit and no doubt many other global employers are executing their risk management strategies.
