Volvo Car India has asked all its employees to work from home due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the country. This step has been taken because the cases have risen to over 100 in the past few days in India. As a global organization, the company says it will continue to exchange information with its counterparts in other countries facing COVID-19 situation and implement best practices to safeguard the health of all the employees.

Volvo Car already has necessary IT infrastructure in place to facilitate business continuity, with scheduled meetings managed via Microsoft Teams/ Skype. Though, access  to the office remains open for any employee who prefers to work from office, after informing respective manager. Enhanced sanitation measures have been taken to ensure hygiene at office premises.  It had already suspended all domestic and international travel from as early as February, to limit the exposure of employees to the virus. In addition, all visits to the site office in Bengaluru unless business critical, are suspended until further notice. The company has further requested its employees to maintain social distancing and refrain from attending public events and places during their social hours.

"As a responsible organization, we are also working closely with our dealers to ensure their facilities are hygienic. Guidelines to dealers include ensuring cars that visit workshops as well as dealer demo cars are properly cleaned before next use. In addition, all demo cars to mandatorily have hand sanitizer. Most importantly, we have urged our employees to remain calm, stay informed through credible sources, maintain personal hygiene and seek immediate medical assistance, if required. The aforementioned measures are likely to be re-evaluated appropriately, as this uncertain situation develops with each day," said Volvo in an official statement.
