Impact of coronavirus on Sulava’s operations

Updated 29th of June 2020 at 14:00:

In August, Sulava returns to normal according to the Government’s instructions. We actively monitor the situation and change our operations quickly if needed. In Sulava both our own and our customers’ and partners’ employees safety and well-being are our top priority.

In August, we will review the guidelines from the health organization (THL) and our Government and change our course of action immediately if needed. We will update any changes to this article.

We will do our very best to help our customers cope with this situation. We keep on helping you with the efficient use of digital tools, services, and the flexible modification of operations to the ever-changing situation.

We have expanded all our training activities to fully cover changes in work culture and the use of Microsoft cloud technology, caused by the corona virus. We have created ready-made solutions and operating models for our customers to move back to the office, to improve communication and to support the work and safety of those in the field.

During the summer, we continue to recommend remote work for all our employees but working in offices is permitted by following precautionary measures and monitoring the health of the personnel. In customer meetings, we prefer Teams meetings, but face-to-face appointments are also possible. For those at risk, we use case-by-case judgement. We work very closely with Microsoft and are constantly bringing new solutions and services to reduce the current and future remote work or technology problems.

Training- and test center

Our trainings in our training center in Finland will start again normally on the 17th of August and the test center will continue to operate unless the Government’s instructions change.

We are actively monitoring the situation regarding the courses in the autumn. We have stepped up our precautionary measures at our locations: cleaning and disinfection to prevent infection. We follow any virus developments and official guidance and instruct all visitors to our premises on necessary measures. We monitor the development of the virus situation and official guidance, and if necessary, we will guide participants in more detail on precautions or the transition to distance training.

The coronavirus now and in the long term affects everyone of us. Even in this situation, we are leaning strongly on our values, for example:

Strive for the best and Share what you know: We have the world’s best expertise in leveraging Microsoft cloud services to help you work more efficiently. In this situation, we need to be able to share our knowledge not only with our customers but also with anyone else who needs our expertise.

Take Care: Right now, the primary task of Sulava is to take care of our employees, our customers and our partners. We need to be able to harness our expertise to the benefit of others so that each organization can act in all the situations ahead of us.

We Succeed Together: In the current situation, no one can survive alone. We will not leave anyone alone in this situation either, but will work together to resolve any difficulties that may arise.

You Have The Power: There is no room for selfishness in this situation. We must all take care of ourselves and our neighbours, but in addition we must also do our utmost for society and especially for the most vulnerable ones.
