Going-there Services during COVID-19
The spread of COVID-19 is having an unprecedented impact on everyday life. Many of us have already been confined to home and restrictions continue to tighten. But while assignees continue to move around the world or adjust to the changed conditions, Going-there remains 100% committed to the delivery of destination services to all assignees and their families.
With health and safety our priority and where support can no longer be delivered in person, remote assistance is being provided by all of our global teams. However, while the mode of delivery may have changed a little, our focus and passion hasn’t wavered. Our key services are now delivered as detailed below.
Emergency Departure Services to assist in the COVID 19 crisis
Going-there has developed a program for clients whose assignees are opting to depart their host cities with little or no notice, in some cases leaving their house keys under the front door mat.
If you have any assignees in a similar situation, and need help, contact Kelly Burtar, VP Global Operations, email address: email@example.com.
Arrival services have been suspended in the majority of locations. We continue to offer advice on local travel restrictions and conditions, market conditions and quarantine regulations where relevant. Where travel is permitted and safety can be maintained, we can also organise a secure pick-up from the airport and transport to the assignee’s accommodation.
We are also now ‘meeting’ assignees via Skype/WebEx conversations, Face Time interactions, telephone calls, email communications, for virtual tours, etc.
