A Message from Melvyn Pun, CEO & Executive Director
Updated: Jun 21, 2020
At Yoma Group, our priority is with the health and wellbeing of all stakeholders; this includes our employees, customers, business partners and the local communities in which we operate.
We take the Covid-19 pandemic very seriously and have taken a number of important steps to protect our people. Since January, we had restricted international travels and initiated meetings with video calls. Thermal screening is in place for all our sites, and paid medical leave are provided for staffs if they and their family have fever or respiratory symptoms.
Yoma is committed to maintaining coverage in our critical services, whether in banking, healthcare, real estate or other areas. Our business continuity plan considers the various scenarios of disruption to support this commitment.
These are unprecedented and unexpected times, but we are committed to navigating this ambiguity with our partners, customers and our communities to support their needs where we can.
At this critical time, it is important to be ready, but not to panic. Each of us has a role to play to defeat this pandemic.
