03/26/2020 – Greenalia continues operating all its business divisions ‘normally’ amidst a very volatile and uncertain situation that has heightened our level of security alert to maximum to protect our people and comply with the temporary regulatory framework enacted for the crisis.
This morning the company held its first virtual townhall named Virtual Green Café where the company’s executives shared with the whole Greenalia team the status of operations and the different actions undertaken to face the current challenges. It was also a chance to connect, for the different teams and professionals that are now under strict seclusion and quarantine measures after 12 days in state of alarm.
During the virtual café Manuel García, Greenalia’s CEO, has shared a message of confidence and encouragement with the staff: “our company’s business model is resilient, the sector we are in is strategic and these factors contribute to put us in a good position to navigate this crisis, until this moment we are continuing operation and production and we remain vigilant on how things unfold”.
The CEO also highlighted that thanks to the strategic efforts the company has made over the last years where the company invested heavily in technology upgrades and in its digital transformation, the transition to working remotely was smooth and the company could even anticipate the declaration of state of alarm and the forced quarantine.
With respects to the protocols and measured adopted in the business areas where working remotely is not possible the company is following the strict guidelines and regulations provided by the National Health Authorities accompanying this with fluid internal communications. We’ve limited the contact of essential personnel with their teammates and eliminated it with third parties, suppliers and habitual collaborators with whom we keep a close and digitalized communication and sustained cooperation.
