To enable SMR to undertake this partial opening, we regularly perform Covid safe workplace risk-assessments and we have reconfigured the office layout to give everyone more workspace, alongside altering many office based systems to follow best practice ideas. MS Teams and other conference call software remains a key part of SMRs operation and probably always will do now, but nothing can beat face-to-face time or office banter. We are also now doing site visits and external meetings, assuming Covid security can be confirmed, this means we’re keen to chat to clients new and old.
