Gil Borok Colliers US CEO v1a

Colliers places the utmost importance on doing what is right for our clients, our people and our communities. Due to the evolving situation driven by the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Colliers has activated several steps and services to protect and enable our people, their families and the clients we serve.

We have:

  • Assessed all Colliers office locations and implemented work-from-home policies (as much as is feasible) for the short term
  • Established national partnerships with Industrial Hygienist and strategic cleaning partners to implement infection control procedures for Colliers offices and managed assets
  • Ensured people with a high risk of exposure to COVID-19, due to recent travel or contact with known cases, do not come into any office or client premises for 14 days after leaving or transiting through the affected areas or contact with a known case
  • Engaged preferred supplier relationships in preparing for the expedited delivery of necessary supplies and resources for Colliers clients and professionals, should they be needed

We are:

  • Helping execute workplace continuity plans for impacted clients
  • Reviewing and expediting lease and flexible workspace transactions for clients seeking alternative space
  • Advising clients on implementing and improving remote working programs
  • Ensuring the most effective technology applications are deployed and available for our people and clients to continue business remotely, “tour” spaces and assets virtually, etc.

We are continuing to monitor updates from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding this situation. For more information regarding the nature of COVID-19, please see this fact sheet. Guidance for travelers may be found here.
