Supporting those who are keeping the country going
The COVID-19 pandemic presents a challenge that we scarcely thought possible. These are unprecedented times but seeing how the nation is responding fills us with confidence that we will pull through this together.
As we navigate our way through this turbulent period, we remain resolutely focused on three key priorities:
- Protecting our employees and the communities we serve
- Continuing to deliver for our clients and maintaining critical services that the country relies on
- Supporting our suppliers and the wider Amey family
Amey is proud of the critical role it plays in the delivery of public services across the UK, many of which are essential to the government’s mitigation strategies for Covid-19, including secure facilities management, utilities maintenance and household waste management.
We are also responsible for ensuring millions of key workers are able to continue delivering vital public services across the country. Firstly, by ensuring their children are able to attend clean and safe schools; and secondly, that the necessary transport infrastructure is in place so these key workers can travel to work.
We’re working round the clock to maintain services whilst keeping the Amey family safe.
Like many businesses, we’re having to quickly adapt: we’re developing business continuity plans to manage operations through the disruption and we’ve mandated working from home where possible.
Most importantly, we’re ensuring managers understand how to respond to potential cases and we have clear guidance on sick pay. We are committed to paying for any Coronavirus related illnesses or quarantine.
Going forward, we will continue to refine how we support everyone in the Amey family, including our clients, our suppliers, and particularly the thousands of small businesses and social enterprises we work with.
