Availability of temporary staff will be more limited than usual. Catering providers at the Olympic Park will need to get their staff from somewhere and will be offering keen rates of pay.
Extended F&B times for service of meals/snacks to guests particularly early breakfast and late night snacks/drinks– a more flexible approach needed during the Games period.
Staff may have more difficulty in getting to work, help them with information for their journey to and from work to enable them to adapt their travel plans.The website www.getaheadofthegames.com provides useful interactive daily maps for staff to use to see which stations will be most affected.
Existing staff may request leave either to act as volunteers or to watch. Non-operational staff
should be encouraged to take annual leave.
There could be higher levels of absence through “sickness”.
Avoid meetings and non-essential travel
