STATEMENT FROM 23 CONSULT LTD
Given the continuing development of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak in the UK, this statement provides an update outlining the steps and measures 23 Consult Ltd is taking to ensure the safety of our staff and the continued delivery of the services our clients rely upon from us.
We have been monitoring the likely impact COVID-19 can have, and if new information dictates any changes to our working practice, our approach will need to be aligned to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, and the ongoing continuity of the high quality services we provide to our clients. For several weeks we have been reaffirming advice from the NHS, Public Health England and the Department of Health and Social Care to our staff, regarding:
• Preventative hygiene measures
• Education on the symptoms of Coronavirus, and
• Measures to be taken by any member of staff believing they have symptoms or have come in to contact with someone confirmed as having the virus.
We feel it is prudent to heed advice from Central Government and take precautions in the interests of the health and wellbeing of our employees and have therefore initiated full homebased working for all staff.
As a business we already have very effective remote working capabilities in place which will aid in the seamless fulfilment of duties. All systems used to run our business are cloud-based, meaning we have no dependency on physical offices. As such, we have the capability to undertake our full duties from home by utilising remote working and collaborative technologies to ensure our effectiveness. As a result of these arrangements, aside from any staff becoming unwell and being unable to work, we do not anticipate any degradation of the services we provide to our clients, in the event of an enforced requirement for all staff to work from home for a sustained period of time.
