Like all Australians and businesses, we are closely monitoring the latest developments in relation to Coronavirus.
While for now it’s business as usual for us, we are taking measures to ensure the safety, health and well-being of our people, clients, guests and suppliers.
From today, if you have arrived from overseas or interstate in the last 14 days, we ask you to reschedule any upcoming meeting you may have with an employee of Peard Group.
Our team members are rolling out remote operations to ensure we keep with social distancing and limiting numbers in our office at any one time. Meetings or gatherings within the Group of more than 10 people have been cancelled.
All Peard Group team members are following strict hygiene policies. We have ensured our staff are in good health, have not been overseas or been in contact with anyone in quarantine or self-isolation to keep our clients safe when entering their property.
All inspectors, Leasing Agents and Sales Associates have been equipped with Peard Sanitiser Packs; Hospital Grade disinfectant solution, hand sanitiser, anti-bacterial wipes and gloves (as supplies are available).
We have asked our team members to respectfully avoid shaking hands with clients and keep to the recommended social distancing guidelines during inspections and viewings.
All of our efforts are designed to support our three key objectives: to protect our team members from infection, to keep our business operating, and most importantly, to continue supporting our valued clients.
Measures we are taking for our clients.
