Today, the world is grappling with a challenge and uncertainty at an enormous scale that none of us could have imagined. The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting every single one of us – our way of life, our communities and businesses, our families, neighbours and our loved ones.
We are deeply grateful to the amazing front-line staff in healthcare and other essential services who are putting themselves at risk every day and working tirelessly to protect and serve our communities and those of us who are most vulnerable.
During this unprecedented global health crisis, we have two priorities: to protect the health and well-being of our employees and those around us and maintain operational capacity to continue to serve our valued partners and customers.
We are closely monitoring the situation and staying up to date with the guidance issued by the Australian government and World Health Organisation so we can make the best decisions for our team and businesses who rely on our network and services.
Here is how GCOMM is responding to the coronavirus outbreak.
Keeping our employees safe
To minimise the risk of our employees and their families becoming infected, we are implementing progressive measures in our office including a staged rollout of working from home. We have also prepared a sophisticated plan in the event that all employees need to work from home, and we are confident there will be no disruptions to the quality of service we provide to our customers.
At the same time, we have put a stop on all interstate and international travel and are discontinuing all non-essential visits to external offices. Instead, we are encouraging the use of videoconferencing and collaboration platforms.
Supporting our customers and partners
Customer focus is a core value at GCOMM. We are here for you and we are doing our best to support your business during this time. Ensuring business continuity remains a top priority for us.
GCOMM has a robust technical infrastructure, and we are taking careful steps to ensure that we are well equipped to continue to serve our customers and partners diligently with minimal impact on your business.
We recognise the critical nature of our role to our customers and have taken all the necessary steps to ensure we can continue to provide the essential infrastructure and services. Please rest assured that GCOMM is committed to keeping your business operational and providing high-performance, secure and reliable network solutions and IT support.
Let’s help one another when it matters most
In these trying times, it is of paramount importance that we all work together and support and take care of each other as best as we can. GCOMM will continue to closely monitor the latest updates as they are issued by government officials and health authorities and we will act accordingly.
The safety, health and well-being of our employees and customers remains our number one concern.
As we move forward, we will continue to keep you updated with the latest information. Please stay safe and if you have any concerns, do not hesitate to contact us.
We are truly grateful for your support and partnership during this time as we all face this unprecedented challenge together.
We wish good health for you, your families and your communities.
