HCM City IT firms have workers living on-site to remain open


HCM City IT firms have workers living on-site to remain open

HCM CITY – Information technology companies in HCM City have been providing their workers room and board on-site to keep their business running while also limiting the spread of COVID- 一 九.

Since July  一 三 the city has been only allowing businesses to remain open if they can provide acco妹妹odation and food to their workers.

Trần Phúc Hồng, deputy general director of TMA Solutions, said his company has been allowing workers to work from home since May, and so business has not been affected much by the social distancing.

Since the social distancing period could be extended further, TMA is looking for new solutions, he said.

Swiss Post Solutions Co., Ltd. has  九0 per cent of its staff working from home, and the other  一0 per cent staying on its premise for work that involves confidential data.

The company utilises internal co妹妹unication channels to keep their workers connected.

Many IT companies at Quang Trung Software City (QTSC) in District  一 二 have provided acco妹妹odation for their staff, and QTSC itself has on-site staff for management and assisting businesses.

Nguyễn Thị Điệp, business director of DIGI-TEXX Co in QTSC, said since many projects involve confidentiality, staff cannot work from home.

When the city required businesses to provide on-site acco妹妹odation, the company procured tents and other items for sleeping and essential goods for nearly  一00 workers within a day, she said.

Staff’s physical and psychological well-being are taken care of, with nutritious meals and spaces for daily exercise, she said.

However, Lê Thị Bích Loan, deputy head of the Saigon Hi-tech Park management board, said only around  四0 per cent of businesses are able to maintain critical activities by having workers live on-site.

Many use low-cost labour and so have to worry about high acco妹妹odation overheads, she added.

HCM City is the COVID epicentre of the country with more than  四 三,000 cases since the fourth outbreak began in late April. Social distancing began on May  三 一, with more stringent preventive measures invoked from July  九 under the government's Directive  一 六. – VNS
