The present is, indeed—a challenging time. The illness known as Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19, formerly known as nCoV2019) has increased concerns among companies about the health and safety of their employees, and the impact on business operations and processes. Many companies in different sectors are taking action—at Teleperformance, we have implemented safety measures and health checks for all of our China sites including temperature checks for everyone entering our facilities, regularly sanitizing common areas and work stations, and encouraging additional precautions around personal hygiene. As COVID-19 develops, the newly formed Teleperformance Epidemic Prevention Team continues to focus on adding and refining employee safety measures.
Along with ensuring the safety of our employees, continuing to deliver topnotch services for our clients is also a top priority. Work-at-Home solutions are the safest way to keep employees out of harm’s way and avoid service interruptions when the unexpected occurs. Terry Rybolt, Teleperformance’s Work-at-Home Global Deployment Managing Director, expressed the importance of delivering a robust work-at-home model in a previous blog.
“Giving people the chance to work from home is no longer something that should be considered, it needs to be implemented,” Rybolt noted in his “Got a Minute” video.
True enough, his statement is highly relevant – especially during the current global health crisis.

In addition, our Work-at-Home solutions positively impact the physical safety of our interaction experts: simply working from home reduces the risks of contracting any illness – not just COVID-19.
