Callan has been closely monitoring the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and have put in place a number of measures designed to combat the spread of the virus, and to safeguard the health of our employees, our clients, and the community at large.
Beginning March 12, all Callan employees were strongly encouraged to work from home and have been instructed to abide by local and federal preventative measures. All of our employees are able to complete their normal job functions while working remotely using Callan applications and communication technologies.
Also beginning March 12, we suspended all business air travel for our employees, and have strongly encouraged tele/web conferencing for all meetings. Finally, we suspended all in-office meetings and employee attendance at business conferences or other industry events.
Our hearts go out to those directly affected by the virus, and to those whose lives are being disrupted by the downstream social and economic effects. We will continue to monitor the situation, and as conditions change we will adjust our response accordingly.
We recognize that these policies will likely create some short-term challenges. We believe, however, that the societal benefits of an immediate and effective response to slow the spread of this virus will far outweigh the short-run costs. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions, and please check back here for updates as the situation evolves. Our consultants will be available and responsive (as always), and can be contacted by phone or email per normal course of business.
This policy will remain in effect until further notice.
