From the very beginning of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, we have watched the evolution of the situation very closely and prepared to take all necessary measures to ensure business continuity while protecting the safety and well-being of our employees, as well as our business associates, partners and candidates.
For this purpose, across our offices in Romania, Poland and Moldova, we have not only complied with all local government regulations but also took preventive actions as needed.
Remote yet connected
Even before the implementation of specific measures by local governments, we have restricted business trips. In the case of personal trips abroad, R Systems employees have been required to work from home (WHO) for a period of 14 days after their return and encouraged to take WHO in case of any symptoms of flu.
“In R Systems we practice a work from home policy which provides work flexibility for our employees on a regular basis. In this exceptional situation, the policy has been extended and enforced. Our internal IT department ensured what is needed to secure enough capacity to enable people to work from home (WHO) in larger numbers and continue to support our customers. So far this has proven a successful model and I am very impressed by our team at R Systems as they showed great understanding of the seriousness of the situation and have come together to solve the tasks. This is not only a matter of ensuring the operation of critical solutions, but also of ensuring that employees stay healthy and limit the spread of virus”, stated Raluca Rusu, R Systems Chief Executive Officer.
The company provides critical software solutions and services to the telecom and technology sectors, among others, which underlines the importance of ensuring the stable operation of the company’s solutions. “The largest share of the company’s clients are located in different countries than R Systems’ offices requiring regular use of digital technologies for remote communication and operations. We remain focused on providing the same high-quality services and smooth communication by using online tools in all our business flows including recruitment and interviewing processes, business meetings and internal team work”, added Raluca Rusu.
Our leadership and HR teams are committed to ensuring transparent and rapid share of information with all employees, customers and partners to provide all relevant updates and needed support.
R Systems has over 300 employees and 11 offices in countries across the globe, of which the largest are the headquarters in Romania (Bucharest and Galati) and the development centres in Poland (Warsaw and Bialystok), Moldova (Chisinau) and India (Noida).
We hope this information is helpful in understanding R Systems’ practices and guidelines as of March 11, 2020 and depending on the evolution of the situation, it will be updated accordingly. We appreciate the continued support from the entire community.
