The announcement of a global pandemic and a state of emergency in Spain due to the spread of coronavirus, as well as its responsibility as a company, have led Ayesa to implement a number of prevention measures and adapt the way it is run to the specific situations currently affecting the countries where it is present.
In response to the situation in Spain, and although the Government has not restricted access to places of work, Ayesa has decided to introduce remote working for a large number of its staff as of today, 16 March. This measure will be introduced in an orderly manner given Ayesa has 3300 members of staff in Spain.
The company has reiterated its commitment to help stop the spread of Covid-19. Its contingency plan also focuses on protecting the health of its staff, whilst continuing to offer engineering and technology services to its clients, which are critical for their businesses. As far as possible, it’s business as usual at Ayesa.
Remote working is going to be a considerable challenge, which will involve implementing exceptional measures. One of these has been the creation of a Remote Working Support Centre, which will ensure staff are able to work effectively from their homes.
José Luis Manzanares Abásolo, CEO of Ayesa, explained how ‘we have the resources to implement remote working through the use of state-of-the-art technology for connectivity and collaborative working, as well as expertise on the processes involved, thus allowing us to act appropriately at all times’.
He went on to note that ‘we will work closely with all those involved in our projects to ensure the current situation impacts them as little as possible’.
Furthermore, he highlighted the fact that Ayesa works for major companies that provide critical services, such as the electric utility company Endesa and the Andalusian Health Service (SAS), meaning it is essential it is on top form at all times.
