Here we outline and will continue to update the measures we have taken in light of the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus.
With the health of Awin Group’s partners and employees at the forefront of our minds, we would like to outline the measures we have taken in light of the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus.
We aim to act in the most responsible manner, taking the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our partners and employees, while also attempting to minimize disruption as much as possible.
Events and training
As the situation continues to evolve, we feel it is irresponsible to bring together large groups of people from across the globe. Therefore we have made the decision to cancel all Awin Group events and training that were due to take place between now and June 30, 2020, globally – including ThinkTank US 2020 and the 2020 Network Awards. At this time, ThinkTank US and the Network Awards will resume in 2021, but should there be any further changes to this we will provide an update.
This was not an easy decision or one that was taken lightly. However with the situation continuing to evolve on a daily basis, we wanted to not only reduce the safety risk but also reduce the financial impact on our partners and the risk of money being lost later if travel restrictions continue to expand. We think it’s best to make the decision now so everyone knows where they stand, rather than operating under the threat of cancellation and incurring more health and financial costs later down the line. We are currently exploring the option of hosting virtual events in their place and will keep you informed.
We will be refunding all tickets and sponsorships for the events and training that have been canceled. We are also offering the option to transfer these costs to our 2021 events. For any ThinkTank US specific questions or concerns, please email email@example.com.
- We have canceled all international air travel until June 30, 2020, and will maximize online/virtual meetings where possible
- Local travel within a territory is reduced to a minimum and constantly reviewed according to local authority guidance
Daily operations and meetings
The Awin Group has already implemented flexible working policies across all offices in recent years, and as a result, is able to ensure business continuity even when our staff work remotely.
In line with local health and governmental instructions, we have taken the following preventative measures:
- Flexible remote working arrangements for staff in general
- Preventive remote working regulations for employees in need of special health protection
- If required locally, temporary remote working arrangements for all staff with full continuity of business and service
- Self-quarantine remote working for employees who have been in contact with infected individuals
- Self-quarantine remote working for employees returning from restricted locations, or if their partner or family members have also traveled to those areas
- Where possible, online/virtual meetings have been organised to replace face-to-face meetings, both internal and external
We offer our sincere apologies for any disruption experienced by our partners during this time while we take the necessary precautions to help prevent the risk of a situation and events beyond our control.
Awin and ShareASale will always follow any official government guidance and regulation on the matter, and we are continuing to monitor official channels for developments and will make changes to our practices accordingly.
If you have any questions related to this matter, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
