The spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to dominate the news, with major implications for public health and the wider economy. We are monitoring developments closely and have sensible measures in place to ensure that SimpsonHaugh is well prepared to respond as necessary.
It is our policy to follow the recommendations of the government and global health authorities. We can reassure you that in respect to the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, we are focused on the health and welfare of our clients, colleagues and staff whilst continuing to support our clients and deliver our collective projects.
We have been testing our systems resilience to allow for remote working and project meetings to be conducted via video / Microsoft Teams or conference calls and confirm that we are fully able to continue to service our clients and projects without interruption. We have commenced remote working in part and, as of tomorrow, Thursday 19th March, all our teams in both Manchester and London studios will be remote working until Monday 6th April, when the situation will be reviewed. We will of course be continuously monitoring the situation and will keep you updated if circumstances change.
We remain absolutely committed to keeping our projects on track whilst continuing to deliver the best possible collaborative service during these unprecedented times.
If you have any queries, please feel free to contact either of us directly or any of our Partners with whom you may be working day to day.
