GlobalLogic Statement of Preparedness for Coronavirus

Updated March 20, 2020

 

GlobalLogic has been monitoring and upgrading our response to the Coronavirus crisis since the beginning stages of the outbreak.  At the time of this writing, we have no reported cases of employee Coronavirus infection, and no GlobalLogic business operations or client projects have been impacted by the virus outbreak and the transition of employees to Work From Home locations (see below for details).  To maximize employee safety, and to reduce risk of impact to client projects, we continue to take action on a number of fronts.

 

A message from Shashank Samant – President & CEO, GlobalLogic:

I hope you and your family, and all your employees are safe and healthy during this unprecedented crisis. Our sincere sympathies, prayers and positive thoughts go out to all those who have been afflicted with the virus.

At GlobalLogic we are doing everything we can to assure our employees’ health and safety, and to minimize impact to client projects. At this time, we have had no reported Coronavirus infections at any of our facilities, and no client projects have been effected. Over the past week, we transitioned over 85% of our employees to work from home (WFH), and we continue to follow all local health regulations to keep our team safe. For the latest status of our response efforts, please visit the GlobalLogic Coronavirus Prevention and Response web page.

We understand that almost all of our client’s businesses are under pressure; some critical and some moderate. You have always treated us as a partner and not a vendor, and in that spirit we stand with you during these challenging times and will do everything we can to support you in your plans. Our promise is that we will do our best in not missing a beat as we transition to working from home / remotely. If you are experiencing increasing financial pressure, then please reach out to your account manager, our Chief Operating Officer (COO) Nitesh Banga (coo@globallogic.com), or feel free to contact me directly (ceo@globallogic.com). We’re ready to work with you, and to find creative ways to keep our projects on track. Our aim is to support you in any way we can.

As always, we are thankful for your business and partnership. We look forward to working with you as we navigate these challenging times together.

 

Prevention & Reducing Risk to Employees & Client Projects:

  • March 10, 2020: GlobalLogic implemented a range of voluntary & mandatory Work From Home (WFH) policies across the globe to reduce employee density and comply with local health department guidelines. We are currently tracking a range of 50-100% work from home (depending on location) with no impact to our operations.  All facilities began enhanced cleaning and exposure safety measures.  In our HQ in California, employees are at 100% WFH due to local “shelter-in-place” orders.
  • February 26, 2020: GlobalLogic further enacted expanded travel guidelines to eliminating all travel, domestic and international, and cancelled all large internal and external gatherings and meetings.
  • February 10, 2020: GlobalLogic canceled all participation in, and employee travel, to major industry trade shows taking place in February including Mobile World Congress (Barcelona) and Embedded World (Nuremberg, Germany), Road to Reinvention Sumit (California).
  • January 31, 2020:, in order to reduce risk of infection to employees, GlobalLogic announced travel restrictions, asking employees to cancel any travel to China or any heavily impacted countries for any work-related purpose. In addition, employees were given the option to opt out of any international travel (to destinations other than China) if they had concerns about the risk of infection.

All employees have been advised to follow the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines on prevention and treatment of Coronavirus: (https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public)

 

Invoking Business Continuity Plans in Case of Infection:

In the event of a reported infection, or known employee exposure to Coronavirus in any of our facilities, GlobalLogic will invoke our Business Continuity Plan (BCP) which contains up-to-date processes for moving business operations to alternative locations. We have already instituted the work from home transition, but our plan is designed to further move workload around in such a way to reduce risk to employees, and prevent interruption of client projects. GlobalLogic’s presence in multiple locations across four continents is a huge advantage in this regard.

At GlobalLogic our top priorities are the health and welfare of our employees, and the success of our client projects.  Should you have any questions, please contact your GlobalLogic team member for further details.  You can also send questions / inquiries to cvresponse@globallogic.com.
