As the COVID-19 pandemic scenario unfolds, the level of economic uncertainty increases.
Now is the time for us to work together to weather the storm ahead.
Integra-International is here for you.
As members we need to stick together to
- Help navigate through the disruption
- Respond to the changing dynamics and
- Be ready to emerge from the crisis ready to seize opportunity.
Primarily we urge you to take precautions to protect the health and welfare of your employees, and your families.
Secondly, we remind you that our collective success depends on the survival of our own clients. Our clients need us now more than ever.
As firms we need to consider developing alternative procedures to manage current work-loads and retain quality service delivery.
Here are some key drivers to remain operational:
- Act fast and decisively.
- Move towards ‘remote working’.
- Get set-up to host virtual meetings.
- Keep in constant contact with your customers.
- Maintain employee morale.
Your employees are the face of your firm and they will play a key role in the survival of your organisation.
Keep your team in the loop with a focus on what, when and how messages should be communicated to customers and what remains confidential.
Keep an agile mindset and remain adaptable to change.
Integra-International is here for you to continue to share knowledge openly and regularly and support you through these difficult times.
Together we will succeed.
