Coronavirus – Facing Challenging Times Together

We are in unprecedented times and facing uncertainty as the Coronavirus pandemic evolves. We want to assure you that Richard Edwards Group is fully committed to the safety and health of our employees and our communities whilst trying to ensure minimal disruption to our work and client service during this critical time.

Some of the specific steps we have taken are:

  • The directors meet daily to review the latest Government guidelines.
  • We have the technology infrastructure for our firm to work remotely. This has been tested and we are prepared should we need to close an office.
  • We have the ability to use video conferencing and Skype.
  • We have reviewed our business to identify critical services and taken steps to secure these (e.g. payroll).
  • Our staff receive regular communication updates and all vulnerable people have been requested to work from home. Our employees know what action to take if they or a member of their family have any symptoms.
  • We have cancelled or postponed all our events, networking and training in the short-term and we are looking at different ways to deliver these.
  • So far as possible staff are encourage to work from home and we have the infrastructure and technology to facilitate this.

Things are likely to get challenging over the coming weeks and months and we are here to help.

Please rest assured that Richard Edwards Group is very much open for business as usual and we are confident that the steps we have taken will allow us to continue to serve our clients in the usual way. Both of our offices will be open to the public as usual and our opening hours remain unaffected.

CHANGES OF OFFICE HOURS DURING COVID 19 OUTBREAK

We wish to advise you that we will be changing our office opening hours from next week.

From Tuesday 14 April both offices of Richard Edwards Group will be closing at 4pm on a daily basis and until working restrictions are lifted.

Please be reassured that we are still very much open for business to support you through these testing times.
