Dear,

The coronavirus continues to develop in the Netherlands. The rules issued by the government and RIVM are increasingly strict. On Sunday, March 15, another press conference was held to communicate the coronavirus policy. The announcement was that schools, restaurants, cafés and childcare locations will be closed. This is necessary to further contain the virus.

Randstad is a people business. Every day we work for and with many people. We want to keep you informed of developments. We are committed to the health of our flexworkers/professionals/advisors. This email sets out what to do and where you can ask questions.

please observe the instructions issued by your client company

You are subject to the measures of the client company where you are currently working. In general, the measures of your client company will be in line with the instructions issued by the RIVM and the central authorities. Do you have symptoms such as nasal issues, coughing, a sore throat or a fever? Then the advice is to stay at home. Please contact your client company, and report to your Randstad contact accordingly. Together with you and your client, we will then determine the best course of action.

Please note: healthcare personnel is subject to different instructions, in accordance with the RIVM guidelines.

your randstad contact can be reached both by phone and email

As from today, all our employees are working from home. This is the best way to make sure we can continue working for our flexworkers and clients. Our branch offices are closed. But we are ready to assist you by phone or email. This measure will apply until at least Monday, 6 April.

The most important measures you can take to help contain the coronavirus are still the same:

●  do not shake hands. Wash hands frequently

●  dry your hands with a paper tissue. Then discard it immediately

●  cough and sneeze on the inside of your elbow

●  use paper tissues

●  keep your workplace clean. Consider contact with objects such as phones, keyboards or door handles

●  avoid intensive social contact

●  do not attend any events where more than 100 persons will be in a single place

●  be very careful when visiting people who are vulnerable to coronavirus.
