Following the latest advice from the UK Government, our position is as follows:
We encourage our employees to return to the office but in a safe way. Our office is a safe environment within which to work. Comprehensive Coronavirus Risk Assessments are carried out incrementally and we continually re-assessed, with updated information provided to staff accordingly. We are ensuring our office is a safe and healthy place within which to work, with emphasis on social distancing and hygiene.
Our utmost priority has always been, and continues to be, the health and mental wellbeing of all Brilliant employees and we are mindful of the lateral effects lockdown and working from home has had on peoples health.
To-date, previous measures have ensured that employees have been able to continue to work and provide a continued service to our customers, in the usual way. We have always stressed to employees, that no employee should come to the office to work, if a) they are showing any symptoms of COVID-19, b) if they live with someone who is showing any symptoms of COVID-19, or c) if they have been told to self-isolate by the NHS Test & Trace service or the NHS COVID-19 App.
In the interests of clarity and awareness, all employees who have had their Covid vaccination have been kindly asked to clarify as soon as possible, so that all employees can make an informed decision about where it is most suitable for them to work.
The sudden loss of key staff could be by sickness or any other reason and is mitigated by having enough competent staff and external professional support to cover the lost resource. In some circumstances and as a small business, employees are often agile and competent enough to cover other roles. Action required to meet the sudden loss of key staff is provided by our appointed HR consultancy and is reviewed annually. We jointly consider the risk, probability, impact, priority and define the mitigation(s) in place and the resulting post-mitigation rating. This is reviewed annually, or after any significant impact/disaster.
Our review policy ensures that our own equipment suppliers, service dependencies and software vendors, do not impact on Brilliant's ability to supply website services to our customers. Should any supplier be significantly affected by COVID-19, we have the agility and flexibility to source products and services from multiple vetted suppliers and vendors.
