When interruption to your business happens due to a long-duration event such as a pandemic, severe weather or natural catastrophe, it can present numerous and complex issues. There are many ways Gallagher can help in times like these.
Working Together

The knock-on effects of interruption to your business, regardless of the reason, can be far reaching and lead many businesses into challenging new territory. Gallagher is well positioned to support you with a range of consultancy services, from risk management to HR and internal communications consulting.

There’s a lot to suddenly think about when you have to make sudden and significant changes to your day-to-day working practices: client and supplier relationships; communication channels; employee health and wellbeing – the list goes on. Taking a ‘business as usual’ approach may not necessarily come easily at first, but we want to help ensure that your organisation and your people can continue to thrive.

Open for business

Firstly, we want to reassure you that we are very much open for business, and are even more committed to meeting our clients’ needs during difficult and uncertain times. We will do everything we reasonably can to find the right way of working with you, whether that’s to establish how best to continue with a planned meeting or business review, or to provide you with additional services you may suddenly find yourself needing such as risk management or employee health and wellbeing.

It’s good to talk

While we may not always be able to speak with you face to face, for example during an office shut-down, there are a number of communication channels and applications available, whether it’s for a structured meeting, a group conference call or an informal chat. We already use various effective audio and video conferencing services at Gallagher, so we’re in a good position to use those communication channels with our clients too. Remote working doesn’t need to feel remote.

Consultancy services to help support your business

We offer a range of consultancy services to help support your business and your people, including risk management and business continuity planning.

We also have of the one of the leading, full-lifecycle employee benefit consultancies, enabling us to provide effective protection, healthcare and wellbeing strategies. Our healthcare consultants and group risk consultants can advise on a range of benefits from private medical insurance to income protection.

As well as being able to offer these consultancy services to businesses large and small, we can deliver advice on the more unusual challenges that your business and people may sometimes have to face. In the event of a pandemic, for example, you may need help with staff training for your business continuity plans, and advice on communication protocols and home working solutions that also focus on employee welfare.

We are here for you

When there’s a significant, ongoing event to deal with and prioritise, it can be tempting to put aside some of the ‘business as usual’ meetings and projects. But we are committed to supporting you, whatever is happening in the world that may be impacting your business.

We can arrange a time convenient with you to set up a video conference for a business review discussion or to give you more information about any of our consultancy services. Please remember that we are here to help.
