Colliers International in EMEA is closely monitoring developments as the escalation of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continues to dominate world news. We are responding to new information and adjusting our approach, as necessary, as the situation evolves.
During this time, our primary focus is the health and wellbeing of our employees, clients, and the communities in which we operate. In addition to following guidance from World Health Organisation and local governments and health authorities, we are taking several precautionary measures to protect our employees and clients while also maintaining business continuity through dedicated teams and robust processes:
- Following Government advice we are encouraging employees to work remotely and instructing any staff who feel ill to avoid coming to the office.
- We are reinforcing the importance of good office hygiene and have made additional sanitization resources available throughout our offices.
- We have implemented new policies regarding business and personal travel, events and meetings, which we will continue to review and align with the latest guidance from local health authorities.
- We have increased the intervals at which our offices are cleaned. We also have protocols in place to close and sanitize specific office locations according to health authority guidelines, if required.
We recognise these are challenging circumstances for our employees, clients and their families and we want you to know that we are working with other organisations and Colliers’ colleagues across the globe, sharing best practices and resources to ensure our clients continue to a receive a high-level of service and support.
