Monitoring risks and adapting our activities and priorities in response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic

Adapting our working practices

During this extraordinary period the wellbeing of Mills & Reeve’s employees remains paramount and we continue to take a sensible and proportionate response to risk in line with current guidance.  Our business continuity group has met regularly to assess the latest government advice, and updates from our senior management team have been issued to every employee: initially on a daily basis and still continuing on a twice weekly basis.  The Mills & Reeve incident management team monitored the build up of the Coronavirus pandemic and potential of a nationwide lockdown ensuring, as a business, we had in place the technology and communication which would allow our employees to work remotely.  In March 2020 we took the decision to re-deploy the majority of our staff to home working offering additional IT and workspace equipment.  Only a small core team could return to the office to provide on-site support and full Covid-19 risk assessments were prepared, including social distancing measures, to ensure our employees or clients entering any of our offices were safe.

Supporting our staff

Mills & Reeve has remained an inclusive employer throughout the Covid-19 period, encouraging our staff to support one another and offering flexibility on work and home life balance, wherever it was needed.  We have also provided access to wellbeing support for all of our staff through our Diversity, Inclusion and Wellbeing programme. As a firm we address mental, physical, financial and digital wellbeing.  We have enhanced our wellbeing further taking a holistic approach to provide support to our staff working at home and in offices. Support includes weekly wellbeing catch ups, support from our Mental Health First Aiders (Wellbeing supporters), providing a range of webinars covering issues such as mental wellbeing, financial wellbeing, bereavement and domestic abuse.  We have risk assessed the health and safety of those within our teams that are at higher risk of Covid-19.
