NextGEN360 is closed for all but essential personnel

Office staff will be restricted to home working staggered by department this week

In line with the UK Government’s advice (16.03.2020) we are switching to home working for the majority of our office staff.

We would like to confirm that as of today, Tuesday 17 March, a staggered shutdown of offices will be introduced over the course of this week.  This will apply to all non-critical office and field based staff and those who are currently able to work remotely without further equipment or support. You should not return to the offices, except to collect any necessary equipment (if you have any queries about this please contact your line manager in the first instance).  We will be offering further information to everyone including all other support staff and production staff over the course of this week.

You will be advised by your line manager who and when this will apply to.

Any member of staff that cannot work remotely due to equipment or business critical reasons will be allowed to use the offices but are advised to follow the enhanced hygiene guidelines (e.g. remain more than 2 metres apart from other colleagues, regularly wash hands)

Where possible, arrange limited visits to the production and warehouse areas to use equipment, obtain information etc.

Precautions are now in place for all on-site staff

In order to reduce the risk coronavirus poses at work – we’re adopting these new measures with immediate effect:

  • Do not book external meetings until instructed otherwise – please use conference calls and webex instead
  • Do not shake hands until further notice
  • Please take extra hygiene precautions (regular handwashing) throughout the day
  • We will be cleaning door handles, stairway grabs and work areas throughout the day
  • There will be no travel for business purposes until further notice
  • We are advising all staff against personal international travel. If you do leave the UK, please do not come back into work until given explicit permission by your line manager to do so
  • Please ready yourself to work from home where your job allows it. It is your responsibility to have the right equipment, software and server access to perform your role remotely
  • Where your job does not lend itself to remote working – your line manager will contact you separately to inform you of any distinct arrangements
