Investing abroad raises all sorts of concerns, but IDA Ireland has got your back. As Ireland's FDI agency we have partnered with over 1,200 clients, helping them not only establish but ramp up their Irish operations. Partner with us and you will soon understand why Ireland wins for ease of doing business.
The Department of Enterprise Business and Innovation and its agencies, working with Ireland’s Service Providers have developed consultancy and training supports to help companies respond to the COVID 19 pandemic. These resources have been developed to support the implementation of the recently announced NSAI Guidelines.
In addition to the normal supports that are provided to businesses through IDA Ireland, a new support for business continuity is also available. It focuses on two specific areas:
This will be a one-to-one consultancy or a one-to-team consultancy with a competent provider to talk through issues related to the COVID19 or to support the development of the site’s Contingency planning, or Business Continuity Planning
Where clients need to continue to communicate and engage with their employees and provide guidance and training to them in any aspect associated with COVID19, this can also be achieved through on-line webinars and discussion guided by a trained facilitator.
This support is open to all IDA clients that need additional help and guidance to manage their operations during this pandemic. Predominantly, these will be companies in the IDA portfolio that do not have large international Business Continuity teams in place..
