How we deal with COVID-19
Meanwhile COVID-19 determines the everyday life of everyone, no matter if in the project countries where AMBERO is active worldwide or in Germany. We see that schools are being closed, childcare is being cut, travel worldwide is being restricted and our project activities are being reduced. In addition, everyone is personally concerned about their families.
We monitor the abundance of new developments, news and information daily in order to be able to react quickly and appropriately to recommended or ordered measures by authorities or clients. It is a matter of course for us to follow the recommendations and implement the measures ordered. This is an expression of our social responsibility, concern for our fellow human beings and solidarity with vulnerable groups of people. Taking care of ourselves is also an expression of this attitude for us all.
As part of this responsibility, we maintain activities in our projects and in Germany as far as possible and show the greatest possible flexibility in the face of obstacles (such as school closures and travel restrictions) or needs of our employees (for safety or concern for personal health). We are convinced of our ability to keep AMBERO running despite all adversities. This includes increasingly switching to home office, coordinating within teams and keeping in touch at a distance thanks to the online communication tools we have long used. We have identified critical processes and, to the extent that they have not yet been, we have put them online.
Especially important to us in the current situation is the exchange and communication with our teams in the project countries to give them orientation and to support them in making the right decisions in dealing with COVID-19.
We are sure that we will be able to meet the current challenges in close cooperation with all colleagues, clients and partners and we thank everyone for their support.
