The Aboitiz Group is prepared to re-open its corporate offices and several offsite facilities following the scheduled lifting of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in Luzon and select areas nationwide.

In a statement, the group said this will be with a strict implementation of a “workplace re-entry program” that is anchored on the company’s longer-term business continuity.

Aboitiz, which is currently operating businesses in crucial industries such as power, banking and financial services, food, infrastructure, and land, currently employs thousands of team members.

About 12,674 Aboitiz frontliners will return to work at the end of the ECQ in various parts of the country. They are team members and subcontractors who need to be physically present in the offices or site facilities to perform their functions.

A majority of its employees would still be working from home.

“What has become clear is that after the ECQ, the way we work will no longer be the same as before. We will be operating in a new normal and a new business environment, a situation that we need to adapt to with resilience,” said Aboitiz Group President and Chief Executive Officer Sabin M. Aboitiz.

He added that, “We are committed to continuously collaborate with the government in firing up the economy, which undoubtedly took a hit during this pandemic.”

Aboitiz said the company and all its strategic business units will proactively implement its re-entry program to ensure the protection of its team members and all its stakeholders while allowing its companies to continue servicing the vast majority of its customers.
