Cripps Pemberton Greenish signs pledge to support businesses through coronavirus crisis
Cripps Pemberton Greenish has joined businesses across the UK in signing the C-19 Business Pledge, an initiative to help support businesses and communities to pull through the Coronavirus crisis.
The national scheme has been launched by former Cabinet minister, Rt Hon Justine Greening MP with entrepreneur David Harrison to encourage businesses to support employees, clients, and communities through the immediate challenges of coronavirus, as well as its recovery. Employers who sign up to the pledge give their backing to three main objectives:
- To support their own employees throughout and beyond this challenging time
- To publish clear and simple advice for clients
- To help communities in Britain through the pandemic
Justine Greening said: “With the future of many employers hanging in the balance and incredibly tough times unfolding in sectors across the UK, businesses face many incredibly difficult decisions.
“But those companies who are able to, can have a huge role in battling the impact of coronavirus and make a real difference in these uniquely challenging times.
“In spite of everything, lots of businesses have already shown amazing initiative and commitment to helping people affected by coronavirus. The C-19 Business Pledge is all about encouraging as many businesses as possible to get involved and then helping them do that faster and better by sharing all the great work that’s already been done. The early response has been incredible and I’ll do everything I can to help to connect up British business to play its role.”
Gavin Tyler, managing partner, commented: “During this uniquely challenging time for every one of us, it is vital that businesses pull together to support one another and the communities they work within. The C-19 Business Pledge goes some way to alleviate the fears and concerns that employers and their people are currently facing..
It has always been a priority of Cripps Pemberton Greenish to look after the health and well-being of its people, and we have already a well-established mental health wellbeing programme for our staff. Beyond this, client care is at the heart of everything we do, and we have developed a Coronavirus hub which provides our clients with the latest guidance and support to help them mitigate the impact of the virus on their business.”
