The COVID-19 crisis had a major impact on OPC’s management of human resources.

OPC had to very quickly move to a situation where nearly all staff were working from home. A small skeleton staff continued to work from OPC’s offices.

The crisis demonstrated that the planning that OPC had done in previous years had been successful as the was no disruption to OPC’s ability to provide its services.

OPC developed a range of materials to deal specifically with the crisis including a COVIDSafe plan and a COVID-19 Transition Plan for return to working at OPC’s premises.

OPC was fortunate that during the year no OPC staff contracted COVID-19.

At the end of the 2019-2020 year, OPC had started the transition back to all staff working in OPC’s offices.
