Colliers Singapore continues to monitor the evolving situation closely, and we remain committed to doing what's right for our clients, our people and our communities.
[UPDATE] This message has been updated on 26 May 2020, in response to the Singapore government's announcement of the end of the Circuit Breaker period, and phased approach to resumption of activities.
The coronavirus outbreak - also commonly known as COVID-19 - has forced rapid changes to our operating environment. Our primary focus is the health and well-being of our employees, clients, and the communities in which we operate. With this in mind, and with our new government regulations in place to maintain safe distancing, we have activated our response plans to ensure business continuity and do our part to flatten the curve.
Colliers has implemented new work arrangements for all office-based employees in Singapore to work from home, in accordance with the Ministry of Health (MOH) recommendations. Site-based employees will follow the agreed plan with clients regarding site working arrangements in accordance with the government’s guidance.
Colliers Singapore remains operational, available and ready to assist you with your real estate and business needs. We are fortunate to have the platform and technology in place that allow us to work from home and keep our employees safe and productive. While our Singapore offices will reopen on 2 June 2020, this will only be for short periods of time and for critical tasks. Our people will continue to work remotely where appropriate.
As always, our commitment to client service will remain unchanged. Our people remain accessible and on hand to offer advice and assist you with any challenges that you may face at this time. We will work closely with you and maintain regular contact and business continuity, fully utilising our cloud technology (Skype, Microsoft Teams etc).
We are pleased to share our latest insights on the effects of COVID-19 on real estate through our microsite, which also showcases recommendations and opportunities for our clients.
We recognise that these are challenging times. We want you to know that we are working with other organisations and Colliers’ colleagues across the globe, sharing best practices and resources to ensure our clients continue to receive a high-level of service and support. Throughout, we remain committed to doing what's right for our clients, our people and our communities. If you have any questions, please reach out to me or the respective Colliers professional who is attending to your real estate needs.
Stay healthy and safe.
