All of us at Charles River Associates are all feeling the impact on our professional and personal lives from the COVID-19 pandemic. Every community and organization is developing its own response to its unique circumstances, but our collective experiences and willingness to share and support each other is a powerful and reassuring force.
At Charles River Associates, we have focused primarily on the health and well-being of our people and providing them with a foundation of stability and safety. We have asked and encouraged our colleagues to work from home wherever possible, with access to networks and infrastructure with the same power, capacity, and security as they had available at their desks within our offices. This has allowed us to both service our clients and achieve progress with social distancing, an effective and responsible action in the battle to contain COVID-19.
In this extraordinary time, we are taking every step available to support our colleagues, our clients, and our friends. We want you to know we are here and ready to help. Please reach out if we can be of any assistance, whether it be with ongoing issues where we’ve worked together before or with new challenges arising from the current global pandemic. This is a challenge we never expected to face, but with it upon us, we want you to know that we are committed to supporting the needs of our personal and professional communities.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or any of my Charles River Associates colleagues, by the same means you have used before – email, desk phone or mobile. We are here and we are ready to help.
