COVID-19 Update

At Catalina Consultants we take the health and wellbeing of our people, our clients and the broader community seriously. At present we have no plans to formally close our office and we are monitoring this daily in line with best practice and official directives.

With the outbreak of COVID-19, we have implemented various safeguards that meet Australian Government COVID-19 guidelines. Our firm will take whatever steps necessary to minimise any risk of infection, spread and impact. We’re regularly discussing any updates or changes as they occur and we will adapt our approach appropriately.

Supporting clients through COVID-19

We have all necessary resources to continue supporting all our clients. The nature of our service is that the team are able to work wherever they needed. We can access emails and files easily from remote locations (we don’t have to be in the office), and our phone system ensures that all calls are responded to in a timely manner. We’re encouraging clients and contacts to replace face to face meetings with video conferencing and phone calls wherever possible to limit meetings to essential-only circumstances. The Catalina Consultants team will guide you through these situations as and when they arise.

Containing risk

We’ve cancelled any scheduled domestic and international work travel for the present time and we’ll continue to monitor the wellness of our people, uphold the highest of hygiene standards and maximise social distancing wherever possible. Again, we’ll continue to monitor the daily changing landscape and act accordingly.

In response, we are also well-placed to assist you as you navigate these concerns within your own business. Please reach out if you require any assistance.
