Many organisations are probably currently filling your inboxes with details of what they are doing to mitigate the effects of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) on their business continuity.
It seems most of us are either directly affected – or know someone who is, at the very least – and the consequences of both the disease and the mitigating actions taken by the authorities are obviously serious. We have been studying the advice from Public Health England on a daily basis and have been adopting it as we go.
For ourselves – and for now, at least – our core team are not directly affected. We have always operated as a distributed team and this has not changed: we are trying to keep a sense of business as usual as we carry on delivering projects and responding to opportunities. We are lucky: our work is suited to being done remotely and we are used to working in this way, and we’re committed to continue providing our clients with the best support we can during this unpredictable period.
We fully appreciate, however, the disruptive effect the situation is having on many of our clients, partners and collaborators. We’re a social enterprise, not just because we maintain the technical standards of one but because we believe ourselves to be a positive part of the communities we serve, so if you have been affected by the situation and you need some help, maybe some questions answered, or just a friendly natter, drop us a line and we’ll do our utmost to give you a boost as best we can.
