At Easterbrook Eaton our staff and our client’s welfare is of paramount importance and we therefore take our responsibilities as a business very seriously. We wish to play our part in delaying the spread of the virus in order to reduce its impact on the NHS and the community at large.
As the government continues to update the public on social distancing and other matters, we are moving towards a mix of staff working from home where possible, and keeping our physical offices in Sidmouth and Ottery St Mary open where practical until further notice. This will ensure that we are able to continue providing the quality service our customers continue to rely upon in these challenging times.
In regards to face to face meetings, we would strongly suggest these are cancelled unless absolutely necessary, but we will continue to meet with you so long as you are happy to do so in light of the Government guidance and associated risks. Our preference otherwise would be telephone conferencing where at all practical.
As the landscape changes we will continue to update you on our plans but if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact either office by telephone or email.
