As the situation around COVID-19 continues to change rapidly, we wanted to share the steps that we are taking at Lochner to support the health and safety of our employees, clients, partners, and communities.
We continue to monitor recommendations and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and federal and local government agencies. In line with these recommendations, we are performing additional cleaning at office locations, implementing social distancing practices including replacing in-person with virtual meetings, and providing remote work options for employees. We have also suspended large event and conference participation, as well as all non-essential domestic and international business travel.
During this time, we have set in place business continuity plans to help ensure client and partner needs are met. While many of our employees will be serving our clients remotely, our offices will remain open for critical operations. We’ve evaluated our technology capabilities as well, adding new resources as necessary to support both employees and project needs.
We will continue to provide clear and open communication as we all work through the emerging issues before us. We encourage clients and partners to reach out to your Lochner project team with any questions you may have.
