We are here for you
30th March 2020
There is absolutely no doubt that these are challenging times.
You will have been told that on any number of occasions and in any number of ways. It’s a fact. However businesses like Ward Hadaway have had robust and adaptable business contingency plans in place for many years – ready for circumstances just like this.
So I just wanted to reassure you that it’s business as usual at Ward Hadaway, in so far as that’s possible.
Our fantastic people are working from wherever they can be safe, using technology that is resilient, to ensure that we continue to support clients who have a need for our services and expertise.
Although our offices are now essentially closed we are delivering exactly the same full range of services to exactly the same high standards that our clients have become used to over a great many years. We have exactly the same people ready to give you the advice, guidance and support that you need.
We know that there are challenges. We also know that you need to get on with things. That’s why we want you to hear our message, loud and clear – we are here for you.
Protecting our people
We want to continue to assure you that we are constantly monitoring the guidance and recommendations issued by the Government and the UK’s chief medical and scientific advisers. This is to ensure that, in so far as we can, we protect the health and wellbeing of our people, our clients and anyone that we interact with during our daily business lives, together with their respective families.
We take the safety of our people and their families extremely seriously. A vast majority of our team are now working from home and we have strenuously emphasised the need to listen to and act on the Government’s advice and recommendations.
Visiting our offices and communication
Although we are no longer hosting or attending face-to-face meetings unless they are absolutely essential (for the likes of our NHS clients) we continue to communicate using telephone or video conference facilities, both of which we can arrange and host.
We have cancelled all Ward Hadaway hosted events for the foreseeable future.
Respecting your contingency plans
We appreciate that you will also have your own contingency plans in place. Our people will follow and respect your guidance when they are working with you and your teams. Please just communicate clearly and regularly with them.
Keeping you up to date
We will continue to publish updates on our approach to dealing with the COVID-19 crisis on our website www.wardhadaway.com. Where you will also find all of our COVID-19 related briefings and commentary.
