Generali Switzerland is extending home office in response to the rapid spread of coronavirus

Mar 6, 2020.

To break the chain of infection as far as possible and reduce the risk of infection with the coronavirus, Generali Switzerland is expanding the home office facilities it already has in place. Meetings, events and training courses with more than 10 people are also prohibited.

The health and safety of its employees and customers is its top priority. That is why Generali Switzerland is doing whatever it can to break the chain of infection and reduce the risk of infection with the coronavirus.


Generali Switzerland has therefore drawn up a detailed plan of measures to protect all its employees and customers and will continuously review the situation and assess developments.


Given the speed at which the coronavirus is spreading, Generali Switzerland has decided to introduce home office across the board from Monday, 9 March, to Tuesday, 31 March 2020. In addition, meetings, training courses and other events with more than 10 people are no longer allowed. Skype calls are to be used instead. Business trips abroad are prohibited at least until the end of March, and business travel by train within Switzerland is to be kept to an absolute minimum. Additionally, employees returning from risk areas, as designated by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), must also work from home. Generali Switzerland recommends that its employees conscientiously observe the FOPH’s health recommendations. These measures will ensure that Generali Switzerland remains operational at all times.


Andreas Krümmel, CEO Generali Switzerland: “We are taking the situation very seriously and asking our employees to follow the measures communicated to help minimise the risk of infection.”
