COVID-19 Update

We launched an internal COVID-19 Resource Site to house our emails, videos, and communication. We want employees to feel informed even though we don’t have all/many of the answers and are taking this day by day. The purpose of this online site is to provide timely information to employees through helpful resources, including links to relevant sites and vendors such as Joyable, and reduce multiple blasts throughout the day/week by updating this site regularly, as we receive feedback from employees, and through an online form. We also created an external COVID-19 Resource Center to provide clients and friends of the Firm with up to date information and guidance through articles, webinars and more —so far we’ve had 500+ individuals register for each webinar. The webinars are conducted by our partner experts on topics such as relief programs, tax incentives, HR and helping companies reorganize financially, etc.
