Many of you have already seen this alert from me in different variations over the last few weeks. Some of you are already remote and following some of these precautions.
Starting today please make all meetings default to virtual or remote. Use Zoom, Webex, Slack, FaceTime, WhatsApp and WeChat to keep in touch with your teammates, customers, vendors and partners. Limit in-person meetings, flying, events and dinners to absolute minimum as possible – if you cannot avoid them please take judicious precautions – thoroughly wash your hands, avoid handshakes and devise ways to do business with remote.
Your families and your safety is of paramount importance for H2O. You, our people, are the most important asset of the Company.
We are a strong cohesive team and we will make up for lost time in the year ahead.
Please kindly be safe, informed not fearful, be connected in the communities you belong to locally and globally. If you need to take time to get well, we have a decent healthcare and sickness policy – keep your team, Dana (HR) and Jacqueline (Offices) informed of any change in your status or situation. The Operations team will coordinate and help me shuffle or coordinate resources and know-how to give care to our folks when they need them. We are small company but we are global and we can be very resourceful and determined to come out of this successfully.
Data science & grandmasters teams should curate good reads on #covid-19 channel. There are a few good Kaggle and Data projects in the community – please highlight and see if we can take part in them.
I care for you all personally, not just professionally and would like to see everyone healthy and fit for the long & arduous journey ahead.
We shall overcome covid together!
We are planning a fully zoom All Hands in the coming week to ten days and look forward to hearing more from all of you and progress as we turn to the last month of the first quarter.
This will be fun, Sri
