Client Update COVID19

We are well prepared

As a leading business continuity management service provider, InConsult continues to lead by example.  Our clients choose to work with us because they know we have the capability to continue to deliver our services when the unexpected occurs.

InConsult is well prepared to sustain the pandemic disruption due to our pre-planning, diligent management approach and capabilities that include:

  • Secure web based technology that allows our people to work remotely from anywhere and share information.
  • Layers of information security (physical and application controls) to minimize the risk to our critical systems.
  • A multi-disciplinary team of consultants to allow critical projects to continue should a consultant have to self-isolate.

Since early January 2020, we started actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation.  Following the Pandemic Declaration of COVID-19, we invoked our Pandemic Plan. 

As the various waves of the pandemic continue, we have implemented a Recovery Plan to guide and communicate our recovery efforts. This includes:

  • Following all public health and safety guidelines.
  • Minimising risk – remote working, conducting online meetings, providing appropriate personal hygiene controls in our office for staff and visitors.
  • Educating our staff and clients about appropriate strategies to minimize the spread. Read more.
  • Daily monitoring of active cases and defined escalation triggers and actions.
