MuyiwaFolorunso, the Chief Executive Officer of Divergent Enterprises on Wednesday, 25th March, directed that all employees of the company should work from home following the spread of Covid-19 IN Lagos.
Divergent Enterprises is the parent company of Porkmoney, Porkoyum and Landlagos. With over 100 employees, working from different locations around Lagos are exposed to the possibility of contracting COVID-19 when commuting to and from work. One employee who contracts the virus could put the entire company’s population and operations at risk.
For this reason, Muyiwa Folorunso believes it is better to be safe than to be sorry. The company immediately drew up plans to ensure that employees remain productive while working from the safety of their individual homes as hand sanitizers and surgical masks were also distributed company-wide.
This stay-at-home directive is in line with the social distancing procedure also called flattening the curve. This means that less contact with people will help reduce the spread.
Global Procedures and Directives
The directive also keys into the advisory from the Lagos State government for private companies and other institutions to ensure that there are fewer than 25 people in any gathering at any time. Divergent has, therefore, proved itself a responsible corporate citizen.
Porkmoney Ranch operations will continue to run at a reduced scale without compromising our health, safety, and environmental standards. This is to ensure that our products are available to customers as they self-isolate. The products can be purchased on our website as well as in food stores.
Divergent implores its staff to stay safe at all costs and hopes that this phase will pass as quickly as possible so that life can return to normal.
