You have probably received several emails in the last few days from companies and organizations offering details of their response to COVID-19 and the coronavirus. Here is what Accounting Freedom and Payroll Specialists are doing to keep delivering the service our clients expect.
Our first priority is to ensure the health and safety of our clients, team members, and their families. We are here to help you navigate uncertain times, whether you are affected by the virus directly or through the volatility of the financial markets. We are closely monitoring daily developments and have a detailed plan to ensure we can continue providing critical services.
Our paid-time-off policies and guidance for our team members ensure that they stay home if they are sick, at risk due to travel or have been exposed to illness.
We are restricting non-essential team member business travel to help prevent exposure.
We are prepared for many team members to work from home as needed so we can continue supporting critical services.
Our offices are prepared with the supplies they need including hand sanitizer, disinfectant, and gloves.
Our janitorial partners will continue weekly cleaning services and have augmented them with additional disinfectant for high-touch surfaces.
We know how much you depend on us, and we are committed to providing the service you expect from us. Our response plan starts with the steps above and progresses to more serious measures we can consider if this situation escalates, such as modifying office schedules.
As an extra precaution, we are encouraging everyone on our team to use Zoom Video Conferencing. Please consider using the electronic submission of information and web meetings during this time. This is a great general practice during any cold and flu season. Some other general practices are:
Wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer while out running errands.
Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze, and keep your distance from people who are coughing or sneezing.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
If you are sick, avoid going out but seek medical care.
We will keep you informed should we need to modify the way we deliver our services. We will also post signs on the doors if we decide to modify operations.
As always, you can reach us by phone.
