Dear SAS customers, partners, and friends of the house.
COVID-19 is truly a global health issue affecting everyone and causing concern for you, our customers. Out of an abundance of caution, we are taking steps to protect our employees, customers and the communities we operate in.
SAS Australia and New Zealand has taken the decision to move to full work from home arrangements for all our Australian and New Zealand-based employees effective Wednesday, 18th March.
All SAS offices across Australia and New Zealand will be closed during this time.
SAS’ Business Continuity Program supports continuation of customer sales, professional services, marketing and technical support. This is a precautionary measure we are taking while continuing to provide the necessary service and support to our customers.
Other guidelines we have implemented include:
- We recommend employees use virtual meeting channels such as Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams and WebEx in lieu of in-person meetings.
- All our staff are advised to monitor their health closely and must seek medical attention immediately when they fall ill.
- Based on recommendations from International SOS, the WHO, Australian Government Department of Health and New Zealand Ministry of Health, SAS has deferred all non-essential business travel.
- We have canceled all SAS-sponsored live events from now through June and will assess online/on-demand options where possible.
Please direct any additional questions or needs to your SAS representative.
