COVID-19 Procedures: Don’t worry!

A safe return to the Octopus Office - COVID19 procedures

In line with the government guidelines, we are excited to be reopening the Octopus office as a new safe and welcoming environment.  We wanted to update you about the COVID-19 procedures, which will be in place should you need to come and visit us from the Monday 6th July 2020.

Staying safe with Octopus Personnel

When you arrive at the front office door, it may be locked – don’t worry!  This is to make sure there is only one person visiting the office at any one time.  Just knock on the door and someone will be with you.

When the door is unlocked, you will be met by Mike who is managing the front desk – don’t worry!  Please wait for Mike to return to behind his desk and then come on in! There is an automatic hand sanitiser next to the door.  Just place your hand under the dispenser and clean your hands.

You will now see a new mat across the floor, a rope and Mike behind a screen – don’t worry!  The carpet is a helpful reminder to simply stand on the feet marks and let Mike know what you need.

If you need to collect paperwork – don’t worry!  All paperwork is safely stored in wipeable folders at the front of the office which are cleaned throughout the day.  You can simply and safely collect what you need.

If you want to register with us – don’t worry!  You can still meet with us in lots of different ways; using #Zoom, #Facetime or #WhatsApp and now face-to-face appointments will be offered if no other choice is an option.

About the author

I oversee all parts of the Octopus machine. From registering candidates to site visits with clients, I love the fast-paced challenge of it all. Leading by example, we are not just recruiters; we are sourcing advisors, which means we are able to act as a friend who can efficiently guide you through productive recruitment drives.

I love being a crazy cat lady, whilst taking mindful moments and balancing on my head! Check out my blog about using mindfulness to drive productivity. Yoga anyone?
