So how did Geely achieve this? As the company details in a fascinating blog post, by very careful monitoring of employee health and by obsessive sanitizing. To get on site, employees have to pass through a tent in which a special camera has been set up to scan temperature. A nearby screen shows a heat-map of your body. Too hot equals potential fever and “anyone with a fever must be sent to isolation and medical teams alerted,” the company says in the blog.
Employees’ temperatures are also checked twice a day while at work, sometimes with hand-held monitors that are passed close to your face. They are meant to be smart enough to detect the difference between a fever and breaking sweat from running up the stairs.
The precautions continue. “Once in the headquarters all employees are given new face masks every eight hours and are encouraged to keep their mouth and nose covered at all times,” the blog goes on. Large meetings are forbidden. A lunch, employees must stand a meter apart while queuing to use the office microwaves.
“Subway guards ask for your Alipay green card to show you’re healthy,” Ash Sutcliffe, PR for Geely Holding Group, wrote on Twitter.
