Happy Thanksgiving week! Because Adrienne and I are going to be taking some much-needed time off later this week (and hopefully you guys are too), our posting schedule is going to be a little lighter than normal. But do you know whose workload isn’t going to be lighter than usual this week and in the foreseeable future? Marcum employees. In fact, when it comes to meeting client deadlines, there will be NO wiggle room—holidays and Rona be damned.
A tipster sent us this email that was sent to all Marcum employees late last week from HR:
With the holiday season upon us and out of an abundance of caution, we recommend that everyone makes plans to bring work and any necessary supplies (including your laptop computer) home in the event of office closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic and potential government mandated stay-at-home orders.
For client service professionals, please coordinate with your teams to ensure you and your team members are prepared and understand responsibilities. If you are unable to make it into your Marcum office, everyone should have the tools needed to work remotely. Be proactive and communicate with your clients so that they understand the plan during this time. Client deadlines remain the same in spite of the pandemic and we trust that everyone will do what it takes to make sure all deadlines are met. For administrative and operations professionals, please speak to your department head in advance to arrange for productive work from home.
Please continue to be responsible and courteous to your co-workers. If you cannot practice proper safety protocols and social distancing while not at work, DO NOT go to a Marcum office or client location.
Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving. Please stay safe and healthy!
And billable, obviously.
