During this uncertain time, we remain operational, available and ready to assist you with your real estate and business needs. We are fortunate to have the platform and technology in place that allow us to work from home and keep our employees both safe and productive. 

Our primary focus is the health and wellbeing of our employees, clients, and the communities in which we operate. We are closely following guidance from the World Health Organisation and Public Health England, taking several precautionary measures to protect our employees and clients whilst also maintaining business continuity through dedicated teams and robust processes:  

  • We are following Government advice to ‘stay at home,’ respect social distancing guidance and work remotely
  • We are instructing any employees who have symptoms to seek medical advice and inform their HR teams
  • 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 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. 

You can find on this page valuable insights on how COVID-19 is impacting commercial real estate, as well as useful information on managing your property or business and supporting your tenants or employees through these unprecedented circumstances.
