Advans Engages and Takes Care of Its Staff Through the COVID-19 Crisis

Advans’ priority is ensuring that staff are aware of the implications of the virus and protected against it. Advans subsidiaries have put in place several preventive measures to facilitate physical distancing, for example home working and limited presence in branches (when open), providing medical equipment like masks and hand sanitizer and generally raising awareness. In addition, several subsidiaries put in place extra measures to ensure staff’s safety and well-being. 

In Cameroon for example, Advans Cameroun sent staff video advice on preventive measures from the company’s doctor to reassure staff who were worried about health implications of the crisis. Advans Cote d’Ivoire’s HR team is individually calling staff (80 percent of all staff already contacted) in order to reassure them, listen to their concerns and ensure they are accompanied in the best possible way. During the calls, different topics are discussed such as fighting the propagation of the virus and basic preventive measures to adopt; any problems related to remote working, as well as concerns about the impact of the crisis on operations. Employees worried for their health are referred to the company’s doctor. Similar calls are also in place in Advans Tunisia.
