A MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIRMAN
As COVID-19 continues to impact the globe, we want to ensure that our clients are fully informed on how Benchmark International is positioned and prepared to make sure that we continue to service our clients during this challenging period.
Benchmark International have been closely monitoring COVID-19 since the beginning of the year and have been complying with local government-mandated screening and prevention procedures in the countries in which we operate. We understand that this is a challenging time, both with regards to COVID-19 and the current market volatility.
Our offices across North America, Europe and Africa remain operational, although to protect the health and welfare of our Team Members we have implemented a work from home policy, during which time there will be no interruption to the service agreements with our clients. Our business continuity plan and heavy investment in technology ensures that during this period we are able to offer our sell-side clients and potential acquirers uninterrupted access to our Team Members, video conferencing and digital platforms.
We place a strong emphasis on collaborative teamwork and for that reason have not previously had a work-from-home policy. However, as we must balance the needs of society as a whole against those of our clients a bit differently in light of the current situation, we have decided to take this approach. Our offices remain operational, teams will be conducting internal meetings, the normal office phone numbers you use to reach your Benchmark team will remain effective and reach the team wherever they may be. We anticipate our temporary adjustments will be invisible to you. While we remain committed to our team members working in a tight-knit collaborative environment, we believe we have the tools and ingrained habits to allow a short detour from our best practices to not affect our clients or our deals. As the public health situation returns to normalcy, so too will our policy. If for any reason you are unable to reach a team member please email COVID19response@benchmarkintl.com.
