Dear clients and partners,
In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic declared by the World Health Organisation and the pronouncements of the Swiss Federal Council designed to protect the population, Hottinger AG has been closely monitoring its evolution and ensured timely implementation of the recommendations and decisions made by the Swiss and European governments and relevant health authorities.
At this moment, we would like to assure you that our top priorities are to ensure the resilience of our operations whilst safeguarding the health and safety of our employees, and to contribute to containing the spreading of the coronavirus.
Our offices are fully operational and the various teams can be reached to respond to any of your requests and queries.
We have implemented our business continuity plan to face the possibility of an office closure, and our operations can be carried out seamlessly from remote locations. Our employees are in a position to connect remotely to the systems they need to perform their day-to-day activities, accessing firm systems by means that maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all data.
Our priority is to reduce the risk of infection for our clients and staff. To this end, we are following the recommendations of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and have implemented a number of measures accordingly.
International and national travel of our staff has been severely restricted and participation in external conferences and events has been cancelled for the time being. Whenever possible we have asked our staff to replace meetings with telephone and video conferences..
As a result of these measures, we will be able to maintain an efficient organization, and ensure continuity of our services during these challenging times.
Hottinger AG will continue to follow the advice of the Swiss FOPH and keep you informed of any further developments.
We thank you for your continued trust.
