In light of the announcement by the Multi-Ministry Taskforce on the easing of restrictions at workplaces, KPMG in Singapore will adopt segregated work arrangements to gradually facilitate returning to the workplace, with effect from 28 September 2020.

These changes will ensure better support for work operations and clients’ needs, as well as to optimise our resources to drive collaborative outcomes and business continuity.

In addition to adhering strictly to guidelines and procedures provided by the government, KPMG in Singapore continues to take measures to enhance the safety and health of our clients and staff members, which remain our top priority.

1      Staff of KPMG in Singapore have been organised into two groups, where each group is arranged to work from home on weekly-rotation basis, subject to nature of work.

  • Meetings should continue to be conducted via video and audio-conferencing facilities, where practicable
  • SafeEntry must be used to check in and out of office premises, in addition to daily temperature, health and travel declarations for all staff and visitors to office premises
  • Staff and visitors will be required to wear masks at all times, and an adequate supply of masks are available, if required
  • All large-scale group events and activities have been suspended, with alternate arrangements put in place (e.g. webinars)
  • Safe Management Officers will be in place to provide support, monitor and ensure strict adherence

2      All staff have been advised to defer all travel, including both work and personal travel, in line with Travel Advisories from the government.

3      All staff have been advised to declare if they have been issued medical leave for acute respiratory symptoms and/or Quarantine Orders and observe Stay-Home Notices and Leaves of Absence.

4      All staff are also advised to declare if any family member(s) is/are serving Quarantine Order(s) or Stay-At-Home (SHN) notice(s).

5      All staff are encouraged to practise good hygiene and socially-responsible behaviors by:

  • Adhering to all safe-distancing measures as directed by the Multi-Ministry Taskforce, as well as KPMG in Singapore guidelines
  • Staying at home and avoiding crowded places
  • Washing their hands regularly with soap
  • Avoiding the touching of their faces with their hands
  • Covering their mouths with tissue paper when sneezing or coughing

Please be assured that these measures are in place to keep our clients and staff members safe, while ensuring business continuity. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and review our measures as the situation warrants.
