We are following the Government advice on living safely with respiratory infections, including COVID-19, so that the health and wellbeing of both our clients and employees remain a priority.
You will all be aware that the government has removed remaining domestic restrictions in England. There are still steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19:
• Get vaccinated
• Let fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside
• Consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces
Our office-based employees are now working in our Southampton Head Office and procedures have been introduced to reduce risk and to ensure that service is not disrupted.
We have protocols in place for any enquiries to be passed to another team member in the event that your key contact becomes ill and is unable to work.
For employers who need guidance on the effects to Group Pension and Risk benefits, there are updates from the insurers we work with. Please click on the link at the bottom labelled ‘Employer COVID-19 Information’.
The nature of our service may be variable due to the changing environment; Radcliffe & Co are determined to continue to provide a comprehensive and professional service to our clients throughout this period.
At Radcliffe & Co, both the advisory and administration teams are able to work remotely meaning that, in the event of an employee having to self-isolate, your adviser and/or administration support will be able to continue working from home.
We are encouraging clients to communicate electronically with us. This will reduce reliance on physical post and avoid potential processing and delivery delays by postal and courier services. Where possible we will share documentation electronically via the Radcliffe & Co secure client portal.
Although advisers are conducting face to face meetings, the option of meetings being conducted via online conferencing services such as MS Teams is of course an option.
Please be assured that we are keeping business as close to usual as possible. We continue to monitor the coronavirus situation and will stay in touch with developments as they occur.
In the meantime, we hope that you remain safe and well.
Thank you in advance for your support and please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries.
