Effective 24 March
Given the evolving situation concerning COVID-19, PwC New Zealand is taking considered action to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our people, contractors, clients, visitors, suppliers and the wider community.
PwC New Zealand has implemented safeguards that meet the New Zealand Government and World Health Organisation guidelines and taken additional steps to minimise the potential impact on our people and clients. We have put these measures in place to help play our part in slowing the spread of the virus.
From 25 March, in line with the New Zealand Government’s announcement all our offices will be closed until further notice.
Working flexibly is already a key part of how we operate and everyone at PwC is well equipped to work outside our office environment. Our IT systems are designed to suit a remote workforce including virtual meeting and technology solutions designed to help us work effectively with each other and our clients across multiple locations.
Reminding our people that if they are unwell, they should not be working.
We continue to monitor the situation closely and will update our precautions and advice accordingly.
As the wider impact of COVID-19 becomes more apparent, New Zealand businesses have a number of considerations to ensure that they are able to respond effectively. We have put together guidance for responding to the potential business impacts of COVID-19 and have a team that can help with risk assessment, preparation and response.
