Covid-19: How do we follow-up our consultants’ repatriation?

15 April 2020

Today we want to highlight the Success Story of Yves, a French engineer whose mission had just commenced when the Covid outbreak began affecting France and New Caledonia.

The unexpected situation the world is facing since the Covid outbreak requires adaptability from companies in every sector. For Easy Skill, most of our global missions across our different Business Units are ongoing, although a few have been paused. Today we want to highlight the Success Story of Yves, a French engineer whose mission had just commenced when the Covid outbreak began affecting France and New Caledonia.

Yves’ Success Story

Yves was on a 5-week mission in New Caledonia, working during the crucial shutdown phase on one of the major metal processing plants on the island. The team was thrilled to have Yves as the Shutdown Engineer on technical support. He was actually quite familiar with and came with much prior engineering experience of this very industrial site !

“I lived in New Caledonia for 8 years and worked during the construction of the industrial site in the Northern province in 2017, so I already knew the complexity of this working environment!”

With his team, he was on focused on industrial piping but operations came to a halt, due to the Covid-19 operating restrictions. Yves and the team then ensured the security and procedures enabling the work on site to be safely put “on hold”.

Having a family back in France, Yves preferred to leave the New Caledonian mission earlier than expected. Of course, at Easy Skill we understood the unprecedented situation and our Easy Skill support team organised his repatriation. Yves was able to jump on the very last plane that left New Caledonia to France before the island’s borders were closed.

“Once I decided to repatriate, Easy Skill’s support team did everything they possibly could to make sure I could return home to France safely!”

Core in our company values at Easy Skill is to nurture and value the relationship with our all consultants over the years. Yves’ story illustrates it: he had already been one of our consultants in New Caledonia in 2017. This time there were unexpected twists and turns in the engagement. What rises above all else is that Yves is home safe in France and both parties look forward to collaborating on projects into the future!
