The spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to dominate the news, with major implications for public health and economic stability around the world. We are carefully monitoring the situation and are following the latest World Health Organisation and Government guidance to ensure that Colliers has responsible measures in place and is well prepared. The health and wellbeing of our employees, clients and communities are paramount and we have plans in place to help protect them and to continue to provide an uninterrupted service.
We recognise that many clients will want to minimise their travel and avoid face-to-face meetings during this period and therefore we can facilitate meetings by telephone and Skype for Business. In the current circumstances, we believe that this is a good best practice. To complement this approach, we have established this resource to provide you with market updates, insights and recommendations across business lines and real estate sectors covering EMEA as the situation evolves.
We want to reassure you that we are taking responsible precautions to minimise the potential impact of COVID-19 while ensuring it is business as usual. As part of this, we are here to support clients in their decision making with the best possible advice to make the best out of what is currently a difficult situation and a challenging market.
