IMPACT OF COVID-19 TO BUSINESSES AND ORGANIZATIONS
In Kenya, the impact of COVID-19 is being felt in different ways by both employers and employees. After a number of cases were reported in our country, the government went ahead and put measures in place to mitigate the effects of the pandemic, such as cessation of movement in and out of certain counties, dusk to dawn curfew, ban on public gatherings, ban on passenger flights in and out of the country, among others. Following these measures there were adverse effects faced by organizations such as business closures, pay cuts, loss of employment, gender based violence and insecurity among others.
Once the government determines it’s safe for businesses to reopen, the health and well-being of your workforce is of the utmost importance, now and in the future.

This being our new normal, therefore, establishing a health and safety protocol to protect against COVID-19 is non-negotiable.
