The commitment and care of our people has allowed us to continue to operate and to supply our customers and consumers with the products they are asking for during the crisis. We thank every one of them for the work they are doing.
Our top priority is keeping our people safe while they work. Our business has always applied world-class health and safety standards, and we have implemented even more stringent protocols including temperature checks, social distancing measures like extra time between shift changes, and increased remote working.
Social distancing guidelines in place at our site in Dongen; we have implemented enhanced hygiene procedures across our operations.
We’re also working hard to provide emotional support for our people during this difficult time, including mental health support and specialist employee assistance programmes.
We want to keep our people in their jobs throughout the immediate crisis and we are exploring and implementing short-term changes to protect jobs longer-term, including redeploying people into different roles and implementing flexible or short-time working arrangements.
Employees at our production site in Ghent are keeping products flowing to our customers while observing guidelines on social distancing.
