Tribal is closely monitoring the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), and we continue to proactively follow healthcare advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and government Health Authorities. We have a robust Business Continuity Plan (BCP) in place to ensure we maintain our ongoing service levels to our customers through this outbreak. An active internal review group is meeting daily to monitor and assess the situation, and we are ready to implement additional measures should the need arise.

Tribal operates several offices globally and work is distributed across these. We also fully embrace flexible and remote working, so even if one or more of our offices need to close, we will be in a position to continue providing an effective service to our customers from alternative offices and home-based employees.

We are taking necessary precautions to safeguard Tribal employees and have implemented some initial policies in the short-term to mitigate any potential issues arising from coronavirus. These include:

 

  • Encouraging our employees to reduce travel and face-to-face meetings where a virtual meeting is appropriate.
  • Following national governmental advice on work-related travel to affected areas.
  • Ensuring Staff wherever possible have remote devices with them in the event of an office shut down.
  • Reviewing our BCP against all likely impacts arising specifically from a coronavirus-related closure.

We will continue to update our news feed with the latest developments.

 

Please be assured that we are here to help in any capacity we can. Please don't hesitate to contact us should you require extended support; need to change delivery timelines; require help with your business continuity plans; or would like any additional information. You can either talk to your primary Tribal contact or get in touch via our email address hello@tribalgroup.com.

 

 

Update: 20 March 2020

 

Empower Conference 2020

 

It is with careful consideration that we have decided to cancel the Empower Conference 2020 at the ICC in Birmingham.

However, we are looking at how we might still deliver the Empower: Higher Education Conference 2020, with really great, informative and empowering content - virtually.

The Empower Conferences designed for Further Education; Skills, Training and Employers; and Benchmarking and Surveys will all be postponed to a future date, which we will confirm as soon as we are able. 

We will continue to closely monitor the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), and we continue to proactively follow healthcare advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and government Health Authorities.

If you have:

  • Purchased exhibition space - we are in the process of contacting each exhibitor to arrange a full refund.
  • Registered your interest in attending the event - we will contact you via email with details of the potential virtual event as we have it.
  • Submitted a session synopsis or agreed to be a speaker, we will contact you individually in the coming weeks.
  • Any questions regarding the SITS User Groups, please contact us.

We will let you know as soon as we have more information on the potential all-new virtual Empower: Higher Education Conference 2020.  In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact events@tribalgroup.com.
