How BUCK is Responding
Dear Friends of BUCK,
In response to the very real concerns about the spread of COVID-19, we want to provide an update on the steps we are taking to ensure the health and safety of our staff and our community while remaining fully operational to serve new and existing clients.
BUCK is following the guidance of the World Health Organization (WHO), and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on preventing the spread of the COVID-19 Virus.
Effective Monday March 16th, all staff in our US offices have moved into mandatory work from home environments. By Friday March 20th, our entire global workforce is working from home. A week ago, we had 3 offices. Now we have over 300. The era of the home office is here.
BUCK is a global company by nature and we were able to make the WFH transition with minimal disruption to our productivity. We moved quickly to implement the latest technology to remotely connect our artists to their office machines, we continue to use video conferencing and instant messaging technology extensively to remain in continuous contact with our clients and each other, and our team remains mindful to ensure the security and confidentiality required by our clients. We have pressure tested all of these systems with complete success.
COVID-19 is, undoubtedly, a challenging situation for us all, however we are committed to doing our part to help resolve this crisis. We promise to keep you updated on any new developments as they arise.
In the meantime, stay safe, #flattenthecurve, and for Pete’s sake, stop touching your face.
