Current as of 7th December 2021
At SAGE Group, the well-being of our people, clients and partners is important to us. We are continuing to monitor and manage the COVID-19 situation, placing appropriate control measures across our regions so that all stakeholders including our employees, contractors, clients and the communities in which we work are kept safe and well.
SAGE has the ability to easily mobilise our workforce to ensure our team can safely and effectively work from home should the need arise from a government-enforced lockdown. In the case where team members cannot work from home during government-enforced lockdowns, they are able to work at SAGE by adhering to strict control measures. These include meeting the following requirements:
As we move into a new phase of living with COVID-19, which is seeing borders re-opening across the country and vaccination rates rising, many organisations now require individuals to be fully vaccinated as a condition of entry to their sites.
Based on this requirement, guidance from health authorities and in the interests of protecting our team and customers, SAGE will be requiring all visitors to our office locations to be double vaccinated against COVID-19, effective from December 6th, 2021.
Upon entry to a SAGE office location, please be prepared to check-in via QR code with your COVID-19 digital certificate of vaccination attached, or show your valid certificate upon arrival.
We have enacted all measures as recommended by the Australian Government in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, including travel restrictions and self-isolation periods for our people. Containment measures include:
These communications include sharing our plan with team members regarding COVID-19 symptoms and hygiene practices through our intranet site that also incorporates updates relating to COVID-19, leveraging a company-wide SMS facility for important safety-related updates, establishing clear guidelines for employees to report their status and how further information can be obtained if required.
Given the importance of working together with our clients and partners to effectively implement these control measures, we ask that you share your company requirements with your local SAGE contact. Please also advise us immediately should you become aware of circumstances where your people may have been at risk of contracting COVID-19 that collaborate with our team members.
Advice from clients and partners regarding their site requirements and how they are responding to COVID-19 is shared with our team.
Our Partners and supply chain
It is important for us in providing ongoing support for our clients that we also carefully manage our supply chain.
We will continue to monitor the Australian Department of Health website for any guideline updates for employers and continue to follow the latest advice.
Thank you for assisting us to ensure adequate controls are in place for the mutual protection of our people and the wider community.
