In these challenging times, as the world is facing the coronavirus, we at Sonova take accountability in helping health authorities worldwide to limit further spread of this virus, safeguarding the well-being of our people, and ensuring a continued availability of required hearing health care. 

It is our utmost priority to protect our employees and their families as well as our customers, consumers and partners. At the same time, we are taking proactive measures to stay on course and support all our stakeholders in maneuvering solidly through these times. 

At Sonova, we are putting global and local actions into place, are constantly monitoring the worldwide development of the coronavirus spread and updating our corresponding guidelines to address the situation. Sonova complies with the recommendations issued by the health authorities, governments and the WHO.  

As a global company we handle this situation both at a global and a local level, with the teams supporting each other mutually and making a strong effort. We are proud to have such a great global team in place and want to say thank you to all our employees for their immense effort, dedication and care.

As a company active in the health care sector, we are also working hard to ensure continued access to the required hearing care and solutions in accordance with the regulatory situation. We are aware of our high responsibility, especially towards customers of an advanced age, and have therefore taken specific and strict precautions.  

Employees who are supporting people in need of hearing care work according to the instructions of the authorities and give maximum priority to safety, health and hygiene. Employees whose presence at the workplace is not absolutely necessary work from home whenever possible. At our offices, production sites and stores, a strict sanitary and safety protocol is in place – to protect our people and avoid any further spread of the virus.
