We hope that you and your loved ones are doing well at this difficult time. Hiventy places the utmost importance on the health of our employees, clients and partners and is doing everything to ensure the durability of our activities in the long term.
Given the rapid evolution of COVID-19 and the recent government announcements, Hiventy has made a number of decisions and we believe it is important to communicate these to you. Below, you will find our updated Business Continuity Plan which outlines the services we will be maintaining and those we have decided to suspend.
Hiventy is applying all necessary measures to guarantee the good health and safe working conditions of all employees involved.
