COVID-19 Management Plan – Update 7
As I write this update, we are about to complete our first week of the 6 week lock down following the announcement from The Premier Daniel Andrews.
In late June, as it seemed the work from home restrictions may ease and children return to normal school life, we had started to work on a COVD-19 Safe Operating Plan should we be able to return to the office in some structured way. While we were in no hurry to implement the plan, having a plan ready to implement ensured our focus on the health and well-being of our clients, our team and the community.
While we know the benefits of our team being together to collaborate and serve our clients, for now, our office will remain closed to normal business with team members continuing to work from home where they can. If there are times team members need to attend the office, they do so with very strict guidelines around fixed days, personal and office hygiene, and completion of the sign-in register.
We will continue using video conferencing for all meetings, unless it is absolutely necessary to hold a face-to-face meeting. Where there is need for a face-to-face meeting, held externally or in our office, this will need to be approved by one of the Directors. For any meeting in the our office, upon arrival you will be required to practice personal hygiene measures and complete an attendance register. We ask you not to attend our office if you have any cold or flu-like symptoms. We hope that these measures will help keep everyone safe.
Since mid March, we have been fortunate to be able to work effectively from home and our team has been magnificent in managing the highs and lows of this challenge. Importantly, we have been been blessed with your goodwill, patience and humour during this time. Thank you for helping us serve you effectively during this time.
If you have any questions regarding during this time, please do not hesitate to contact Sam Hunt or me.
