In light of the current widespread of the virus, Kian Soon has implemented several initiatives to safeguard our employees and to help others.
Since February, all visitors to our various offices has undergone through temperature taking, recording and tracing of past and future travel plans during their visits. Follow up actions have also been put in place and practised to ready the respective key personnel if the situation should arise.
Internally, the organisation has set up alternate teams of employees, deployed at different localities to avoid the risk of infection between the two groups. Employees have been cross-trained on covering work responsibilities, should the situation arise, to minimise disruptions.
Through short workshops and e-mailers, we have educated our employees on infection control, good personal hygiene practices, and ensured adequate supply of appropriate personal protection and medical equipment, such as masks, thermometers and sanitizers for each employee.
After ensuring minimum supply for our company, Kian Soon has now moved to helping others in need. One of these initiatives was executed last week (17-21 Feb) whereby we ordered an extra stock of sanitizers and distributed them freely to employees for personal use and / or for their families. Employees were not charged for the sanitizer packets and encouraged instead, to donate any amount to a compiled fund for Charity.
This Charity fund and excess sanitizers has been scheduled to be donated towards various organizations to aid them in the fight against the current COVID-19 outbreak. As of current, we have managed to gather well over three times the initial cost of the sanitizers in donations and are in contact with 2 local organizations for the follow up actions.

Kian Soon would also like to ensure all our customers that as of current, there are only limited and minor disruptions to our services in terms of lead and delivery times from our China based Suppliers, for which, we have alternative suppliers on majority of the affected products. Please contact your local representative to find out more. You can also send a general email to firstname.lastname@example.org
An official mailer will be sent out later this week with more details in tow.
