South Korea’s response to COVID-19

As one of the first countries heavily impacted by COVID 19, South Korea had to early adopt bold counter measures with some tangible results - number of new infections seems to have peaked on 3 March and is considerably down since then.  After some early criticism, the Korean government has generally received positive marks for its handling of the situation and is now being looked as a model for countries later in the infection cycle.

GR Group response to Covid-19

With offices in Tokyo, Osaka, Seoul, Washington D.C. and London, the GR Group has been working to support employees and clients through the COVID-19 crisis.

To date, there have been no cases of COVID-19 diagnosed among our staff.

The company advised all staff on 24 February to seek medical advice and stay at home if they experienced symptoms consistent with COVID-19.  Staff were encouraged to adjust working hours to avoid commuting during rush-hours and were advised to postpone all non-essential travel.

야코브 에드베리 GR그룹 회장(사진)은 5일 한국경제신문과의 이메일 인터뷰에서 “한국에서도 전문적인 정책컨설팅을 통해 민관의 소통이 사회적으로 긍정적인 영향을 줄 수 있다는 점을 알리는 데 노력하겠다”고 말했다. ​
