With the uncertainty of the situation surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) continuing to evolve, we understand that it is affecting businesses in many different ways. We want to assure you that your team at PKF O’Connor Davies is fully committed to the safety and health of our employees and our communities while ensuring minimal disruption to our work and client service during this critical time of year.
We have always had a strong infrastructure in place to support our business continuity efforts. We are leveraging those assets and policies and strengthening them where necessary to ensure our firm and our clients are in the best position to succeed without interruption during this time. Some of the specific steps, resources and policies we’re leveraging are outlined below:
- We have the technology infrastructure for our entire firm to work remotely, if necessary. We are proactively testing all remote access systems and processes with a mandatory work from home day for all employees in the coming days.
- We are providing updated training and bolstering resources on video conferencing and remote communication strategies to all employees throughout the organization.
- We have communicated to our staff that if they have symptoms such as fever, sneezing, coughing, etc. we request that they stay home. The same applies to staff whom the CDC considers to be at high risk or has family members at risk or with symptoms.
We will continue to update you on the specific steps PKF O’Connor Davies is taking as the situation evolves. We also want to make sure that your business is as prepared as it can be during this time of uncertainty.
