As you are aware, we are all currently in an unprecedented situation, the implications of which are not fully known. There are unusual challenges which affect us all.
PBC recognises the need to prioritise the health and safety of our employees, and all others who we work with across numerous projects. Also, we recognise the need to provide continued support for our clients and project teams through this period of disruption.
Following the latest guidance by the Government, which focussed on avoiding non-essential travel and social contact along with working from home wherever possible, PBC has from today implemented a home working policy wherever possible throughout the practice. This will use our IT systems that have been previously tested to provide ongoing delivery of our services. There may be some challenges ahead around the overall telecoms infrastructure and capacity to cope with the unprecedented demand that it will see. Meetings will continue using software such as Microsoft Teams.
Our plan is to continue with this arrangement for the forthcoming period, to protect the health and well-being of our employees, and we will keep these measures under constant review as Government guidance evolves. We want to reassure you that we have made preparations to continue support and involvement on all our projects.
We appreciate your understanding in these unprecedented times, and if you have any questions or concerns then please speak to your PBC contact.
