To our valued clients,
At BGBC, the health and safety of our employees and our clients is of paramount importance. For this reason, we are taking specific precautions to protect our staff and visitors during the current outbreak of Coronavirus. With confirmed cases reported in the geographic areas surrounding our client and employee locations, we are considering the potential impact and how we can best protect our clients and staff.
According to the most recent information from the CDC, for most people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is low. However, we want you to feel comfortable working with our firm during this important and critical time of year. Below, we’ve outlined how we are working to minimize potential risk as we work towards the upcoming deadlines together.
Electronic options – To protect both our staff and our clients against virus spread, we are recommending that where possible, we conduct information sharing using electronic options. While meeting your advisor face-to-face can certainly alleviate stress around this time of year, we can accomplish much with telephone and electronic sharing. To provide us with documents, you can send items through the Share file link located below the signature block on any of our team members email. We also have tools available to facilitate digital meetings and screen sharing.
Remote considerations – As part of our contingency plan, we continue to develop and update our plans in the event that our physical office needs to close. Should this occur, we want to assure you that our work will not be disrupted as we operate effectively in a completely virtual environment. We have the resources to ensure that each of our staff members are able to work remotely for as long as they may need to.
Rest assured, we are monitoring this developing situation closely. If any major changes occur, such as the need for an office closure, we will update you as soon as possible with details. Thank you for your patience and trust in BGBC during these unusual circumstances. If you have any questions or further concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your service team directly or contact our office at (317) 633-4700.
