No handshake policy at Talent Acquisition Live


After consulting RIVM (The Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) there is currently no reason to cancel Talent Acquisition Live. We do ask you to stay at home if you feel even a little bit ill. We also request you to take measures (e.g. no handshaking, wash your hands regularly) in line with RIVM advice. Venue De Nieuwe Liefde will take care for additional relevant cleaning (contact surfaces) and disinfectants. We will monitor the news closely, re-evaluate daily and take additional measures if needed.


No handshake policy


As the Corona virus is spreading and handshakes are one way that it is spreading, at TA Live we try to do everything possible to limit the risk as much as we can. So we will have a ‘no handshake policy’ at the event. You won’t be kicked out if you do, but we strongly advice against it and we urge you to respect every attendee that does not want to shake hands in this time of uncertainty. Our replacement suggestion is the Hindu greeting of Namaste (I greet and respect you). You fold your hands together, fingers touching each other, in front of your chest and bow your head slightly. You can also say the word Namaste.
