Argos Wityu has the organization and technical resources allowing us to remain fully operational:
- Our infrastructure and tools had been designed to ensure business continuity in case of a crisis and are performing perfectly in line with expectations.
- We started to take some early steps as soon as end January to anticipate a possible widespread outbreak in Europe. A dedicated Covid-19 Response Team has been established, in order to monitor the situation, adopt appropriate measures and issue timely updates.
- In that context, our offices switched one after the other to a remote work organization, and for the last ones on March 12, ahead of governmental requirements.
- Business goes on at Argos Wityu, even under these difficult circumstances, by means of the use of remote working technology that offers all business-critical resources the possibility to work from a remote location.
Over the past 30 years, we have gone through several tough periods. This experience, combined with the expertise of our teams, is our strength today. More than ever our objective remains the same: help our companies adapt to situations while preserving their balance and economic health.
We salute the commitment of the teams led by their CEOs who are also actively preparing for the upcoming recovery plan. We are doing our best through advice, experience sharing and expert support to help management teams to protect businesses in the best possible way.
Entrepreneurs and Investors’ trust is our most valuable asset. We are aware of this and we will be worthy of it.
