COVID-19: Relevant information and links for your business
The New Zealand Government, along with many partners have dedicated web pages to share and update on COVID-19.
There is a lot of information circulating and frequently updated as new developments occur. It is important to be aware, and current on these unfolding events to be able to establish and amend as necessary your own planning and procedures for your business and your employees.
To assist local businesses the Manawatu Chamber of Commerce are running two free information sessions to assist employers and employees:
COVID - 19 Working Remotely with Microsoft Teams
March 23 from 3.30 – 4.30pm at the Conference & Function Centre
Workplace guidance for employers and employees on COVID-19
March 24 1.00 – 2.00pm at Fitzherbert Rowe, Rangitikei St.
At PN Personnel we are constantly evaluating and updating the way in which we conduct our business with our Clients and Candidates, from our Client meetings to our Candidate interviews. We are assured by our robust policies and procedures and feel we are well-prepared and educated to minimise the risk to our team and business.
We are also regularly updating all our team on any changes and any developments which may affect the way in which they conduct their communications and work.
Our collation of links below can inform, advise and assist in your business planning:
