Please find our latest statement in regards to the COVID-19 Coronavirus situation below:
“Our position is very much in-line with the UK Government’s announcement that “social distancing measures will not be introduced yet.” We continue to follow UK Government guidelines by insisting that any employees who have recently visited affected areas are to self-isolate for a period of 14 days during which time they should work from home. In addition, we have extended the work from home / self-isolation rule to any employee who has advised us that they have been in close contact with any other individual who has been advised to self-isolate.
We are aware that a number of organisations have taken the decision to cancel or postpone events and travel, however, we will be enhancing our normal risk assessments and considering each event individually. For the time being all events and travel already scheduled are still planned to proceed as normal, however, in this rapidly changing situation, we recognise that the likelihood of having to cancel or postpone an event or travel at short notice is increasing and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. We also recognise that every organisation’s situation is different and we ask that you also assess risks in regards to your employees attendance at shared events accordingly.
Rest assured we have full contingency plans in place for business continuity in the event of a step up in Government advise for “social distancing” to be implemented. As a result of this we foresee no impact to our continued support and service of your business.
We are maintaining daily monitoring of UK Government advice and the situation is under constant review with our Leadership Team who continue to meet regularly to discuss our response to developments and we will keep you updated on any change.”
