The business world is facing a formidable disruptive force in the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand the significant role that we, as a partner, must play in ensuring your business runs as it should in these challenging times. We know the health and well-being of our employees and our clients are of critical importance.
We are monitoring the global developments and disruptions engendered by COVID-19 (Coronavirus) through the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) daily. We are adjusting our standard operating procedures rapidly in conjunction with each of our clients as the situation evolves. We have taken steps to establish a business continuity plan in the past month and initiated a decisive and aggressive rollout of the plan in recent weeks to ensure we are well-positioned to conduct business as usual.
