A steady hand in uncertain times

Strong relationships are the bedrock of our business, and they are something we value dearly. Even though we might not be able to meet face to face as we would normally to protect the health and wellbeing of our 850 people, their families, our clients and to uphold our social responsibility to prevent the spread of the virus further in the communities we live and work in; we want to reassure you that your Johnston Carmichael team will be here for you and your business now and in the weeks ahead. 

The disruption caused by the outbreak of COVID-19 will vary depending on the nature of your business and the sector you operate in, but the effects will be felt by all. We will remain on hand to support and advise you as required to ensure that you have the best prospects of successfully meeting the challenges, in whatever shape or form, that lie ahead for you and/or your business.

Our contingency plans are in place 

For some time now we have had business continuity plans in place, and these have been rolled out across our network of offices. Like many employers, we too have had to take steps to protect our business during this difficult time, utilising some of the government measures available. An increasing number of our people have been agile working for some time now and technology allows this to happen very effectively on a larger scale; ensuring our people are able to work and communicate with you and your teams remotely while still being able to provide you with the services and support you need.  
We work as one firm and share resources across our network of 13 offices across Scotland and beyond and we will continue to do this to ensure that, regardless of the challenges we are currently facing and are likely to continue to face in the coming weeks, we avoid any possible disruption to our clients and minimise any adverse impact on response times.

Your practical business actions to take now

We have created a guide that sets out a number of practical steps that we believe all businesses, regardless of size and sector, should be taking right now. We will continue to provide updated guidance, particularly on the Government incentives as the details emerge and new announcements are made:
