Cox & Palmer Closes Offices to the Public and Implements Business Continuity Plan to Continue Client Service

March 19, 2020

The Cox & Palmer COVID Response Team, comprised of our Chief Executive Officer, provincial Managing Partners and Chief Operating Officers, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Information Officer, continues to monitor the situation closely. These are unprecedented times and we are navigating each day with care and concern.

We are mindful of the stresses that closures of schools and daycares, in particular, have had on our team.  We are a business comprised of many parts – a critical part being our employee team and their families.

With the health and safety of our employees, clients and communities our top priority, Cox & Palmer will be closing its offices to the public and scaling up remote operations. These decisions allow us to align with the social distancing recommendations of government health authorities while providing uninterrupted service to our clients.

Continuity of Service

  • Our teams remain available for client service.
  • Our network and systems have been tested and are secure. Our team is adept at working remotely.
  • We will continue to serve our clients’ needs throughout. We are abreast of the impacts COVID-19 is having on global markets, local markets, and your business, and are here to assist you and provide the necessary support during this uncertain time.

We have recently published How to Prepare for Coronavirus in the Workplace, and COVID-19 – How Employers Can Manage the Workplace in These Uncertain Times comprehensive resources outlining what employers in the Atlantic Region should consider when responding to Coronavirus within the workplace.

We extend sincere thanks to our health care professionals whom we know are under the greatest pressure of all, to you, our clients, for your continued business and loyalty, and to our team here at Cox & Palmer, who are working hard to ensure we continue to deliver uninterrupted top quality client service.

We are all in this together.
