The health and well-being of our employees, their families and friends are particularly important to us these days. The owner family, management and works council are therefore making every effort to protect our teams worldwide from infection with the corona virus. In doing so, we are guided by the requirements of international and national health authorities – but also decide what measures to take after careful internal consideration. These currently include the following:
- consistent compliance with hygiene measures at all sites
- Avoidance of physical contact, for example during greetings
- Avoidance of travel that is not absolutely necessary
- Avoidance of meetings in larger groups as far as possible
- Use home office and virtual meetings wherever possible.
With these precautionary and protective measures, we want to help contain or slow down the spread of the virus. At the same time, we want to ensure that we have taken all the necessary precautions to trace and interrupt chains of contact and protect colleagues from passing on the infection in the event of an infection within our workforce.
In addition to our unrestricted duty of care towards our colleagues, we must also keep the entrepreneurial side in mind. The comprehensive precautionary measures are therefore also intended to ensure that WEBER can continue to produce, fulfil its delivery obligations and thus generate the turnover necessary for long-term success.
In this context, we have decided to suspend customer visits to our sites until April 19, 2020 and to keep the appointments of our employees at our customers’ sites to a minimum. In addition, all training dates until April 19, 2020 will be cancelled. We will offer alternative dates in due course.
Outside of these restrictions, however, we are fully available for you. As the movement of goods is not affected by any restrictions at the moment, no bottlenecks in customer service or the ability to deliver our products are expected in the coming days and weeks. We are your reliable partner even in this exceptional situation.
The situation is characterized by a high dynamic. We therefore make all relevant information available on our website and our social media channels on a daily basis.
We remain with the best wishes
