Hope Capital has returned to full office occupancy, following a phased return since January 2021.
It has assessed each member of staff’s individual circumstances from both a mental and physical health perspective before returning.
Following government advice, Hope Capital has set up a variety of measures to ensure it can create and maintain a safe workplace; this includes routine testing before entering the premises, the distribution of mental health surveys for staff to complete regularly, and the set-up of screens and safe workstations in the office.
Does remote working have a positive impact on the personalisation of advice?
Jonathan Sealey, chief executive at Hope Capital, said: “The health and safety of our employees is always our top priority, which is why we have taken a measured approach to reopening our office.
“Despite a tough year, we have remained resilient and adapted to a new way of working when required, which enabled us to continue to lend and deliver the same innovative, flexible and tailored solutions to brokers and their clients.
“However, with restrictions easing and a roadmap out of lockdown, we believe now is the time to return to some normality while ensuring we provide a COVID safe workspace.
“Operating from the office enables us to continue delivering an efficient service to our brokers and clients from enquiry to completion.
“We feel fully confident we are now in an even greater position to continue to assist brokers and their clients with their bridging finance enquiries and are delighted to return to a sense of normality, albeit at a safe social distance.”
