Sitowise will not start new projects with Russian-owned entities
Company will also review ongoing agreements and projects, and initiates to exit such projects.
At the beginning of March, Sitowise outlined the principles regarding the effects of the Ukrainian war on the company's projects, subcontracting and personnel. For the past week, the company has been working to put these principles into practice.
Sitowise will not start new projects with Russian-owned entities and will review ongoing agreements and projects to seek for exit. Sitowise does not have active projects in Russia or Ukraine, or any subsidiaries, offices or employees in these areas.
In addition, Sitowise will investigate the situation of its subcontractors and suspend cooperation with Russian-owned partners and, in the future, with subcontractors located in countries that are Russia's allies in the war.
Sitowise stresses that any form of racism or discrimination is not acceptable - these measures are targeted at companies, not individuals.
For employees, Sitowise provides an opportunity to have discussion help through occupational health and encourages to seek help actively if needed. It is understandable that the war in Ukraine causes anxiety, and following daily war news can cause stress and fear for the future.
