Martin Storm, CEO of BMM Testlabs, has praised his leadership team’s approach during the coronavirus pandemic.
“BMM is a values-led culture and ‘care’ is at the heart of our first organisational value. We care for our staff, our customers and the world we live in,” he stated.
“Our first action in March 2020 for dealing with COVID-19 was to establish a global leadership group we called the ‘Care Committee’. Its central focus is the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, supported by our commitments to business continuity.
Storm noted that worldwide the company has been “very lucky to see only three COVID- 19 infections” none of which had “none with serious long-term consequences”.
“Importantly, we have returned more than 95 percent of all COVID-19 furloughed jobs and made many more hires,” he continued.
“A strange result from this pandemic is when I implemented a hiring freeze at BMM it was followed almost immediately by accelerated business demand and additional hiring. And that demand is continuing to grow during COVID-19,” added Storm. “By mid 2021, I expect a more optimistic tone leading to greater business activity and employment.
“BMM is better placed than ever to serve the gaming industry with world-class services in testing, compliance, inspections and technology, and importantly, to provide a unique perspective on how to do it all better, faster and cheaper than ever before.
“Our point of view is different to our competitors and our growth suggests that our message resonates in the industry. Let me take this opportunity to thank our staff, our customers, the regulators and all of our stakeholders in the global gaming industry,” he concluded.
