Our Response to COVID-19

March 12, 2020

As a response to COVID-19, the PwC Japan Group has taken the following measures with respect to all partners and staff (approximately 8,100 people) belonging to our group’s firms. 

We apologize for any inconvenience caused to our clients and other relevant parties affected by the measures, but we ask for your understanding, as this is an effort to prevent the spread of the epidemic and to ensure the safety of our staff.

1) Working from home
・ We have strongly recommended working from home to all of our staff. If there is a need to come to the office for specific business matters, we will try to avoid the crowded times for public transportation.
・ If there is a need to work at a client’s site, we will discuss the situation with the client beforehand and agree on it.
・ The implementation period was set at two weeks starting from March 2, but it will be extended to the end of March based on the current situation.

2) Business trips
・ We will defer or cancel business trips as much as possible, both domestic and international, unless there are any specific, compelling reasons that they must be taken in the near term.

3) Seminar and Events
・ For the time being, the seminars scheduled to be hosted or co-hosted by our group will be, in principle, cancelled, postponed, or held on the web. We will update relevant information on our website from time to time.
