DMH Stallard’s approach to service continuity during the coronavirus outbreak

Update 2nd April 2020
DMH Stallard takes decisive action in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic
 
The Coronavirus crisis is having a significant impact on everyone’s personal and professional lives.  Over the last few weeks the firm has focussed on mobilising our teams to work remotely to ensure that we continue to provide the great service our clients have come to expect. 
 
Thankfully DMH Stallard has entered this crisis from a position of strength and we now have all of our teams working productively from home, available through email, phone or video links.  All of our partners remain in position with appropriate support ready to serve our clients’ ongoing requirements.
 
Recognising the short term impact on our transactional business,  we have decided to  furlough a number of our employees under the government employee retention scheme from Wednesday 1 April.  We anticipate all of those employees will return once the lockdown is over and the market returns to some degree of normality.
 
We are committed to providing the support to all of our clients during this difficult time.

Update 19th March 2020
Stay healthy - Our offices are now appointment only


To protect the health of our people, our teams and our communities we kindly ask that you refrain from visiting our offices if:

  1.      you have returned from anywhere abroad within the last 14 days
  2.      you or anyone in your household or immediate family have had cold/flu/coronavirus symptoms within the last 14 days (7 days if you live alone) 

If you do have an appointment please ensure that you wash your hands thoroughly on arrival at our offices.

Update 16th March 2020
All London based staff are working from home

We have advised all our London based staff to work from home in light of the latest government advice today. Although we have no reported cases of Coronavirus in the firm, the health and safety of our colleagues and our clients remains our priority.
 
All of our professional staff have the facility to work remotely - either at home or in other offices – so this will ensure service continuity for all clients.
 
All of our other offices remain open at the current time, although over the coming days we will significantly increase the number of people in the firm working from home.
 
We are closely monitoring the government’s advice and will respond quickly and take further steps as and when required.


Update 12th March 2020
Service continuity during the Coronavirus outbreak


As you will appreciate the Coronavirus outbreak is a fast moving and unprecedented situation, but with remote working and flexibility are very much at the core of DMH Stallard’s culture and the way we work.

 

Our systems have been designed and developed for service continuity. All of our professional staff have the facility to work remotely - either at home or in other offices. As the government have not (yet) insisted people work from home given the relatively low numbers of coronavirus cases in the UK, our staff and partners are maintaining their usual working pattern between the office and home each week. We are however taking the necessary steps to increase our capacity for home working across the firm if and when that is required.

 

Our priority is to protect everyone in the firm as far as we can and to provide continuity of service.  We have reviewed our business continuity plan which defines what we need to do in the event of temporary absences and emergencies. 

 

The initial steps we are taking are to restrict travel between our offices and encourage more virtual meetings, and to postpone all our larger scale marketing events for the current period. Further steps may need to be taken depending on the government’s advice from time to time.
