From late March, our team have all been working remotely for the first time. During these past few months, we’ve kept ourselves and our clients working as efficiently as possible. We wanted to let you know how we’ve progressed and our plans moving forward.
Whilst most of our team are still working from home, we do aim to have a member of staff in the office five days a week now. This is to support delivery of equipment and oversee some decorative work we have happening in the office. We are slowly welcoming members of the team back to the office but are approaching this flexibly to suit staff preferences.
We are welcoming visitors to our offices for pre-booked appointments only. Once you have booked an appointment, you will be asked to complete an online form.
All visitors must wear a face mask or covering as recommended by the government when visiting the premises of a professional service (read more). If you are exempt from doing so, please let us know in advance of the appointment.
Currently, we only allow one visitor to attend an appointment. This is to ensure appropriate distancing can take place. Whilst onsite, you must always maintain distance from our staff.
We have installed a temperature check and sanitising station in the entrance to the building. All visitors will be required to check their temperature and sanitise their hands upon entry.
Toilet facilities will be available to visitors. We will regularly clean touch points, including the entrance buzzer/door handles/chairs/stair rails between appointments.
For our full guidance on visiting our offices, read more here.
With the help of applications such as Microsoft Teams, we are still conducting online meetings to suit your preference.
We have been conducting site visits over the past few months to carry out essential work. Whilst we aim to continue remote support, site visits will be carried out where needed. We will be requesting risk assessments before attending the site. Members of our team conducting the visit will minimise contact as much as possible, and follow any guidance set by the premises.
Following previous work experience at Breakwater, I am now undertaking an Apprenticeship position within the company. Within my role I am able to expand my technical knowledge whilst assisting the Service Desk with client enquiries and support – learning along the way.View my profile >
The UK Government is encouraging businesses to welcome back employees to the office. Whilst some may be in a rush to return and others are adopting working from home full time, there are many businesses looking for a more flexible option.
