Arrhenn Limited, a Nigerian-based Investor Relations Advisory firm, is partnering with global teleconferencing solutions company, Chorus Call to enable businesses adopt work-from-home as the coronavirus pandemic threatens to shut down economic activities in Nigeria.
The partnership will allow businesses access industry-leading technology through a host of audio, video and web conferencing solutions, Arrhenn Ltd said.
“These platforms are company branded and allow you to meet, work, learn, communicate and collaborate virtually,” said Abayomi Ogunjobi, Chief Executive Officer of Arrhenn Ltd. “We believe these tools are of great service in the current conditions, and broadly within the context of the future of work.”
Ogunjobi said the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic is expected to have significant economic impact on businesses as the country implements policies aimed at curbing the spread of the disease through social-distancing.
States across Nigeria as of Wednesday had begun implementing wider measures to limit public gathering including a directive for civil servants to work from home, while some private organizations have similarly shut down their operations temporarily.
Economists have warned that businesses could be forced to lay-off some of their workforce in the face of a significant slowdown in revenue resulting from the disruption to their activities.
According to Ogunjobi, companies can however minimize loss and even increase their productivity by taking advantage of digital technology to ensure that business activities continue without putting the lives of their employees at risk.
“We can keep on engaging with each other, working for a better tomorrow whilst staying healthy and strong,” he said.
