Louise Agran, CMO, Racing Post Q&A

What measures has Spotlight taken in light of the coronavirus pandemic?
Our foremost concern was the health and safety of our employees. With more than 400 staff members across the group, located in the UK and internationally, we had to ensure we put in place the strictest procedures from the outset to protect them from the virus. After trial periods tested on smaller groups in the weeks leading up to the lockdown, we now have all staff members working from home or in a safe environment following government procedures.

This has obviously been a huge effort to ensure the Racing Post website and the newspaper is published daily, while operations continue across the group with no disruption to our customers and clients. Working from home is a new world for many of our staff and we have set up regular video calls, group-wide communication initiatives and ensured our team of mental-health first-aiders are on hand to help our staff through this unique period.
