In light of the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we would like to update you on the steps we, at Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH), are taking.
We continue to closely monitor government advice and are taking action in line with our Business Continuity Plan (BCP), to reduce the risk to our people and clients from COVID-19. The health, safety and wellbeing of our employees and clients remains paramount.
Our BCP allows us to continue to provide a fully uninterrupted and high quality service to our clients. We have resilient infrastructure and fully tested systems which enables us to adopt smart working practices. With this in mind, we are advising colleagues to avoid any unnecessary travel and large gatherings of people, to help reduce the potential exposure to COVID-19. We have conference and video call facilities in place to remain fully connected to both our people and clients at all times. Unless government advice changes we will, continue to attend key stakeholder meetings, in consultation with our clients.
We have over 1000 professional staff operating from our extensive office network across the UK and Ireland. This, together with our IT platform, means that in the event that any of our people become unwell, we have the company resilience to continue to provide an uninterrupted service to clients.
We are continually monitoring and reviewing the escalating situation in line with the latest government guidance and will keep you updated on developments.
Finally, our thoughts go out to those already affected by the outbreak.
