As at 12.00pm, Wednesday 12 August 2020, Auckland has moved into Level 3 of the COVID-19 Alert Level system, and the rest of the country into Level 2. Following the government's announcement on Friday 14 August, these alert levels will remain in place for the following 12 days.
We have been here before, and we know that our team are equipped to work remotely and adapt to a new ‘normal’. TPG’s greatest priority continues to be the health and wellbeing of our people and our clients. We take our responsibility seriously to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
Our Auckland office closed at midday on Wednesday 12 August, and will remain closed until the Level 3 restrictions are lifted. Our Auckland team will continue to work remotely, working as close to business as usual as possible. We have the technology and proven ability to do this, with full access to our internal systems and the ability to continue to collaborate with the wider team as usual. This means our clients will continue to receive our trusted and independent advice with our usual high quality of service.
The rest of our offices across the country remain open in Alert Level 2, although there may be cases where some of our people will work remotely. Again, the health and safety of our people is our top priority. We are actively following the advice issued by the government, including contact tracing, social distancing and good hygiene practices. We understand that situations can change quickly, so our teams are preparing for any circumstances which may arise over the coming weeks.
We have a business continuity plan in place which has been recently updated to comply with strict health and safety controls in accordance with all Alert Level guidelines. If you have any questions about this, or would like to discuss anything, please get in touch with your usual TPG contacts. We are all in this together.
