Cultivar Consulting’s Managing Director was quoted as saying that even though there are COVID-19 precautionary measures in place, employers may not be able to effectively enforce safe distancing outside of work place.

But Mr Zac Ng, managing director of recruiting agency Cultivar Consulting, said that it may be difficult for employers to ensure that their employees do not socialise outside of work.

“Within the office, we can ensure safe distancing. But if they want to go out for a drink after work and so on, it may be something that is out of our control,” he said.
