GlobalLogic Statement of Preparedness for Coronavirus

Updated March 11, 2020

The spread of Coronavirus is a very serious and evolving situation, and we are all very concerned. At the time of this posting, GlobalLogic has no reported cases of employee infection, and none of our business operations or client projects have been impacted by the virus. While we hope this trend will continue, we have taken a number of measures to promote employee safety, such as restricting all non-essential travel, requiring self-quarantine after travel to highly impacted countries (i.e., CDC Level 3 countries), and cancelling our participation in several global events and large employee gatherings.

In the event of employee exposure to Coronavirus or infection at any of our facilities, we will invoke our Business Continuity Plan at the affected location and move workloads as needed to ensure that client projects are minimally impacted. This is a challenging situation, but we believe that by educating our employees about prevention, reducing travel and exposure, and being ready with our business continuity plans, we can effectively reduce the risk to our employees and client projects.

We are actively monitoring the situation and will continue to provide updates as they become available. If you have any questions or concerns, or if you have your own policies that we need to be aware of, please reach out to your account manager or send an email to our prevention and response task force at cvresponse@globallogic.com/in.

As always, we’re grateful for your business and the trust you place in us each and every day, especially during this difficult time.

GlobalLogic has been monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) 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.  To promote employee safety, and to reduce risk of impact to client projects, we’ve taken a number of key actions:

Prevention & Reducing Risk to Employees & Client Projects:

  • GlobalLogic has no employees or subcontractors in China.  As such, no employees or client projects are at risk due to the spread of Coronavirus in the country itself.
  • January 31, 2020:, in order to reduce risk of infection to employees, GlobalLogic announced travel restriction to China, asking employees to cancel any travel to China for any work-related purpose. In addition, employees were given the opportunity to opt out of any international travel (to destinations other than China) if they had concerns about the risk of infection.
  • On February 10, 2020: GlobalLogic canceled all participation in, and employee travel, to two major industry trade shows taking place in February. These events were hosting large attendee populations from Asia: Mobile World Congress (Barcelona) and Embedded World (Nuremberg, Germany). We believe keeping our employees from attending those events reduced the risk to our traveling employees, and those back in the office with whom they interact.
  • February 26th 2020: GlobalLogic further communicated expanded travel guidelines to reduce “non-essential” travel, with an intent to reduce large internal and external gatherings and international travel.
  • 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 rare chance of wide-spread employee exposure to Coronavirus, GlobalLogic will invoke our Business Continuity Plan (BCP) which contains up-to-date processes for moving business operations to alternative locations, and enabling employees to work remotely.  This plan is designed to 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. Click here to download the PDF.
