Stone Business Continuity Update
To Our Valued Clients and Partners,
As we enter the new reality created by COVID-19 (coronavirus) and its continued impact on the global community, I am writing to personally update you on the measures Stone is taking to ensure our business continuity.
In keeping with the most recent guidance from the World Health Organization, Stone has enacted our Business Continuity Plan, with special consideration given to the implications of COVID-19. In this current environment, the well-being of our employees, clients and partners is our primary focus and social distancing will be of paramount importance.
Effective Monday March 16, all Stone employees will be working remotely and leveraging our technology platforms to communicate virtually. Our Toronto office will remain closed until further notice. Rest assured our remote working policies have been rigorously tested and we are confident we can continue to support our business functions and provide exemplary customer service with minimal disruption.
I am sharing this link to a comprehensive overview of the realities of COVID-19 which has provided our management team with great insight. As this is a very fluid situation, we will continue to provide regular updates by email as events unfold.
At present we are thankful that the entire Stone team is well, and we remain available for your questions and feedback. We welcome discussions and sharing of information as we navigate this challenging environment together.
We thank you for your continued support and we wish you and your loved ones good health in the coming weeks.
Richard G. Stone, CEO
