The coronavirus (Covid-19) situation unfolding around the world has created an extraordinary challenge for governments, healthcare systems, communities, businesses and individuals. At FICO, our top priority is the health and safety of our employees, clients, partners and the communities where we live and work.
We are actively monitoring the situation. Based on the advice of government agencies, as well as the World Health Organization, we have restricted travel for all FICO employees and are encouraging all of our employees to work from home to help prevent or reduce virus spread through social distancing – an effective technique for preventing transmission by increased physical separation between individuals and avoidance of large gatherings
FICO is a mobile-enabled workforce and built to run efficiently from remote sites. Because of this readiness and our distributed model, we are confident that there will be little to no disruption in our ability to support our customers.
Also, in an effort to help minimize exposure and spread of the virus, we have canceled upcoming FICO events and will instead be looking for opportunities to connect virtually with our clients.
This is a rapidly evolving, unprecedented situation and we must remain calm, yet vigilant in our response. As a reminder, the best way to prevent the spread of the virus is to take every-day preventative actions, washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue. If you are sick, stay home.
