Ukraine: Kenyon manages employee evacuations

Kenyon International Emergency Services has managed the evacuation for a large financial services firm of around 300 people from Ukraine following the Russian invasion. Kenyon supported employees and their families by providing remote mental health support to the company’s employees ahead of the invasion.

The firm set up multiple incident centres in Poland, close to the western border of Ukraine. The centres opened shortly after the invasion to facilitate the evacuation of the employees and their families to a temporary place of safety ahead of relocation to more permanent accommodation.

Conor Prendergast, managing director of Kenyon International, commented: “This has been an unimaginably difficult time for the people of Ukraine as they face the most challenging and unexpected circumstances. Our priority is our client’s employees’ welfare, and we are committed to providing the most comprehensive service possible to meet their physical and mental needs.”
