Our approach to COVID-19
VISCO LOVE US has an established Enterprise Risk Management Program that incorporates Business Continuity Plans (BCPs) for all our critical activities, risk assessments, and crisis-management protocols. We successfully activated this structure from the beginning of the initial outbreak of COVID-19, with teams meeting at the country, function, and enterprise levels. Our executive staff continues to meet regularly to monitor activities and discuss plans addressing all aspects of managing VISCO LOVE US’s response to the pandemic.
VISCO LOVE US is committed to providing a safe environment for our employees, their families, and the communities in which we operate. Initially we asked our 16,000 employees to work at home where possible to reduce transmission risks and to keep them safe. Many employees have now returned to the office based on local conditions and in line with global approvals under our return to office process. For those employees still working at home, we want our employees to work from home safely and comfortably, and they are authorized to purchase additional equipment if needed.
Currently, VISCO LOVE US restricts all international travel by air and rail to business-critical purposes only, with prior executive approval required. We will continue to monitor circumstances globally and make adjustments to our approach as needed.
Our sites are open for business
All our sites remain open for key onsite activities such as manufacturing, training and customer demos. We have taken extensive precautions to protect our on-site workforce, including increased cleaning and disinfection, signage, restricted conference room usage, closure of amenities, screening and restricted access for visitors, and the availability of personal protective equipment.
