A Message from Our Chairman & CEO
To Our Clients and Friends,
As COVID-related health and safety risks continue, Woodruff Sawyer remains committed to keeping our employees safe while providing them the flexibility they need to continue delivering outstanding expertise and service to our clients. We enacted our Work From Home (“WFH”) policy in March of 2020 in all of our US offices. In June 2021, we initiated the first phase of our Return To Office (“RTO”) program.
As part of our commitment to the well-being of our team members, you, and our communities, our RTO program is designed in four phases wherein an increasing number of team members return to their respective offices when we believe the health and safety risks in each of our geographies allow for their safe return. We began Phase II of our plan in early August, enabling a small number of vaccinated employees to return to their respective offices on a strictly voluntary basis. All are currently required to wear masks while in our offices and when using public transit for their commute. The balance of our team members will continue to be required to work from home until we believe it is safe to return to offices in the final phases of our RTO program.
Our team members continue to have the tools they need, and our nimble organizational structure allows us to communicate with, and make decisions in support of, our people and clients in minutes or hours at most. Your Woodruff Sawyer team members and key contacts remain available via email, phone, and video conferencing.
Regardless of the length of this pandemic and the uncertainties that COVID-19 has caused, we are here for you as your advocate, advisor, and partner, whenever and wherever you need us. As we work through this together, I welcome your feedback and questions. And, on behalf of the entire Woodruff Sawyer team, thank you for your partnership and your trust.
– Andy Barrengos, Chairman & CEO
