With the rapid development of COVID-19 in the UK, Dedalus believe it’s important to be open about how we’re responding.  With family values and people at the heart of our business, we have taken the following precautions to protect our employees as well as those with whom we work.

The below information reflects our guidelines at 16th March 2020.  As the situation progresses we will update relevant points accordingly:

Remote Working

Dedalus UK has long been an advocate of providing the flexibility for employees to achieve the most relevant and efficient working balance suited to their role.  In light of current developments, the welfare of our staff and those nearest to them must comes first and as such, all employees have been asked to work remotely with effect from 12th March 2020.

Company Travel

We believe that limiting travel by shared-access transport is a sensible option to help reduce risk of infection.

Employees have been asked to cancel any pre-existing international trips, and refrain form booking future trips until further notice.  Our policy for travel within the UK advises against all but essential travel.

We ask employees returning from international travel or who have had confirmed or suspected exposure to infection at any time, to self-quarantine for 14 days.

Meetings and Events 

Whilst working on a case-by-case basis, the standard current Dedalus policy is to use audio-visual platforms for meetings, events and marketing as a default, and limit any meetings in person to no more than four people where absolutely essential.

Communications

Dedalus HR and leadership team are updating employees on the latest developments and strive to address concerns and questions where possible to provide the support needed.  All employees working with external Partners, suppliers and third parties will be communicating and working to Dedalus policies and Coronavirus guidance issued by Public Health England.

Business Continuity

In spite of the restrictions created by COVID-19, Dedalus UK is committed to maintaining the level and high standard of business support to our Customers and Partners, through

  • 24/7 call assistance
  • On-site assistance team (using protective measures)
  • Solutions which pioneer shared knowledge and collaboration, without the need for face-to-face meetings

Please email uk@dedalus.eu, should you have any enquiries related to the above.

We appreciate your continued support and wish to extend a heartfelt Thank You to all NHS hospitals, Customers and Partners who are all going above and beyond to help patients at this crucial time.
