How do we weather a tornado of change?
"Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance" - Samuel Johnson
All of us are in challenging times. However, we cannot afford to be lethargic to life, work, and business. As governments across the globe are tirelessly implementing measures to contain the ill-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tookitaki has been taking strict precautions to protect our team members along with their families, while ensuring continuity in our business. We consider our business 'essential' during times of crisis as there are criminals taking advantage of the current situation to enlarge their scope to launder money.
Women are good crisis managers by nature. In the case of Tookitaki, we have a women leader spearheading the company's efforts to weather the situation and continue with our day-to-day business. Our Co-Founder and COO Jeeta Bandopadhyay's views on business continuity amid COVID-19 has been published by Business Times. Read her thoughts below:
People are core to Tookitaki's business and growth. Given the current situation, our employees are working from across locations with stringent security and privacy controls in place. At Tookitaki, our engagement with clients and partners continues to be stronger than ever, albeit via virtual means rather than face-to-face.
It's business-as-usual at Tookitaki as money-laundering criminals never sleep. To address the current situation, we have adopted robust virtual collaboration spaces for seamless communication and secure access to business data, so that we continue to actively support our clients in ring-fencing their compliance processes.
