What is Pearson TalentLens doing regarding the safety of their offices for customers, visitors, and employees?
To reduce contamination risks, we have heavily restricted travel for all employees. We have also strongly recommended that our employees limit their non-essential domestic/leisure travel and follow all government and health professional guidance regarding gatherings.
We have asked all employees to work from home wherever possible, and in all cases to follow their government guidance regarding workplace usage. In compliance with World Health Organization guidelines, our facilities teams are taking steps to protect staff and customers in the offices that do remain open.
In all circumstances, Pearson employees who are feeling unwell are to refrain from traveling to customer or Pearson locations. Employees are advised not to return to a Pearson office or attend in-person client meetings or trainings for 14 days if they or an immediate member of their household have traveled to a Sustained or Widespread Risk classified location, as designated by the CDC (see Coronavirus Disease 2019 Information for Travel).
