A leading global bank, with a global network of financial and business centres needed to maintain essential services throughout the pandemic and called upon GPDQ to provide Covid-19 rapid antigen testing in the workplace.

The objectives were clear from the outset, and we worked with their Head of People, Talent and Inclusion to achieve them.

Company objectives: 

  • Enhance existing Covid-19 controls and measures in the office 
  • Give further peace of mind to key workers who need to work regularly in their London office
  • Help to validate their Covid-19 Workplace Health strategy and mitigate employees’ anxiety

GPDQ provided:

  • Covid-19 rapid antigen testing kits for 65 key workers per day
  • Clinicians for administering the tests at their London offices
  • Results within 30 mins of each test being carried out 

The regular rapid antigen testing of asymptomatic workers detected two cases of Covid-19 in the first two days, the individuals in question were isolated immediately and received a PCR on site to confirm the result. This level of regular test and trace practices prevented isolation periods for non-infected employees and reduced absenteeism and instantly instilled confidence in the workforce. 

I’ve found the team at GDPQ to be incredibly customer focussed and easy to work with.  They are very responsive and go out of their way to provide a high level of service.”
