With the increasing spread of Covid-19 we would like to share with you how Helmsley Group and Colenso are planning to mitigate potential impact to the services we provide.
In line with most organisations, and following the advice of Public Health England, we are focusing on preventing the spread of infection and as such have issued guidelines to all staff on hygiene best practice, which we are rigorously enforcing across our office.
We have reviewed our Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and tested our Emergency Plan, specifically in relation to staff communications.
As a company we use cloud technology for our key business systems, and already support remote working. Measures have been put in place to ensure all staff have the capability to work remotely with laptops / mobiles should we need to close the office or encourage isolation.
Therefore should we need to implement our Emergency Procedures in line with our Business Continuity Plan, then day-to-day activity will be largely unaffected. We envisage, therefore, that impact is likely to be minimal in the event the advice from Public Health England is to close the workplace or have people self-isolate.
In extreme circumstances, our key focus will be to maintain contact with our clients and keep business disruption to a minimum.
Please bear with us during this period of uncertainty for us all. Although there may be business delays we will endeavour to prioritise workload accordingly to keep these at a minimum. With quarterly rent distributions due at the end of March 2020, we will continue to monitor the situation closely and update you accordingly.
Outside of this current threat, as a matter of course, we cross-train our staff so that in the event that any area of the business were to be severely impacted in any way we can reconfigure Support operations as required.
As for all of us, the situation remains dynamic and we will be issuing updates as advice from the authorities or our own company’s circumstances change.
Should you have any queries, then please contact one of the Helmsley Group team.
