In response to the Government advice that wherever possible employees should work from home, we have implemented plans for Vertem and Vertus Wealth staff to do exactly that.
All staff have access to technology and facilities that will allow them to perform their daily duties as efficiently as possible from remote locations and access their usual day to day systems. The business will operate as normal during this period and we expect minimal disruption or delay during this period. Additionally all existing telephone numbers will remain operational during this period
Prior to yesterday’s government announcement and given we had the infrastructure in place to do so, we made the decision that it would be socially responsible for the business to execute this plan regardless. We apologise if you have a meeting with us that has had to be cancelled or rearranged as a telephone call, understandably our first concern is not just with the health and well-being of our clients and colleagues, but also those around them and the wider population.
