Arkus’ message in regards to covid-19
At Arkus achieving our goals and obtaining success is simply not possible without a strong team work backbone. This is an essential pillar to the company’s success and therefore the wellbeing and safety of our staff is top priority. Which is why our contingency protocols were activated back in march to maintain operational performance, but also to keep our team and their families safe.
In the last few weeks we’ve shifted operations across 2 countries, 3 offices and 200+ employees to work from home as per health authority recommendations. Our IT staff has been closely monitoring tickets to assist our teams and ensure everybody is operational from their homes. This includes everything from facilitating VPN accesses to checking-out dual monitors and specialized devices, where applicable.
Despite being locked down at home our management team has held virtual parties in celebration of team members’ birthdays, the talent team has challenged us to play kahoot trivias and somehow a home cooking showoff thread was born in our internal communications channel. This shows the creative spirit is well embedded into our culture and it is very important to me to maintain the Arkus culture strong even if we are not able to interact in person.
Lastly I want to emphasize we are taking things one step at a time, being cautious and diligent as we make important decisions to continue supporting our team members and clients with quality, efficiency and safety.
By complying with the protocols and guidelines from our authorities, we will overcome this situation. In the meantime, let's continue to support one another and stay safe during these trying times.
