COVID-19: Supporting Our Clients and Employees
As COVID-19 continues to heavily impact all elements of society, at WE Communications Australia, we have taken measures to support our clients, staff and the broader community through this unprecedented period.
Maintaining safety and well-being
While we have had no reported cases of COVID-19 relating to our employees, we have taken the preventative measure of asking all staff to work remotely for a period of at least two weeks, commencing Monday 16th March, with extensions of this arrangement possible.
We consider this a prudent measure to contribute to slowing the transmission of COVID-19.
As flexible working is already an important part of our culture, our staff have the tools and infrastructure to remain connected, and these working arrangements will not negatively impact on our ability to deliver services to you, our valued client.
You can continue to contact your WE Communications team via email and mobile phone as usual.
When it is deemed critical to our client service, we will endeavor to attend small meetings, face-to-face, observing strong personal hygiene and social-distancing practices to minimise risk. We ask for your corresponding support in this regard.
We continue to monitor the situation daily, with the understanding that at all times the safety of our team, and yours, is paramount.
Supporting you through COVID-19
