Clients and friends,
I don’t recall ever facing a crisis quite like the current Coronavirus situation. Let’s hope it passes quickly and that all of our colleagues, family, and friends stay healthy. I trust that you are managing through this crisis and its many impacts. At Clayton & McKervey, the health and safety of our employees is of top importance. As such, we have taken several steps to address the rapidly changing nature of this virus, and the effect it is having on our employees.
For example, if anyone from Clayton & McKervey is scheduled to work with you or your organization in a way that requires face-to-face time, we will be in touch to discuss options to safeguard both the health of your team and ours. I admit to preferring face-to-face meetings but recognize that we have excellent technology which allows us to accomplish most of our work via phone, through electronic file sharing, or using our LifeSize technology. As a reminder, LifeSize is a tool similar to Skype, which allows for security-protected face time from the comfort of a remote location.
Hopefully, this crisis is short-lived. But it is here and upon us, and we must all act with calm determination and thoughtful execution. We are here to help and will be available to respond to questions you may have about our work together. The health and safety of you and your colleagues are in my thoughts, and I remain confident that with the resolve of our business leaders and talent of our staff, that we will move through this crisis together.
