Status: Reopened under strict conditions with prior management approval
Due to the rapid increase of COVID-19 cases in the Netherlands in the last few weeks, people will only be allowed on the HDI Global Specialty SE floor under certain conditions with management approval. These measures will remain in place for the month of October and will be reviewed according to the developments of the virus and official recommendations from the Dutch government.
If people are permitted to enter the office, a health form will be completed for all building visitors. Once inside the office, we have ensured that all desks are separated to a distance of 1.5m. Communal spaces, such as the elevator and lunch area, will be out of bounds.
Managing Director, Faisal Setoe, commented on the business operations and effect of the coronavirus pandemic: “We have continued to support our brokers and clients during COVID-19 as best we can. Until now, this has been done remotely of course. In a short time, we have transitioned to a 100% digital working environment without quality compromise. In some cases, we have been able to improve the quality of our service due to increased efficiency in a remote and digital landscape.”
The Netherlands management team is reviewing the situation on a weekly basis, using government advice to guide their decisions. We will update the information here as and when any changes are made.
