Specialist short-term lender, Hope Capital has returned to full office occupancy.
Hope Capital has been working closely with its team in recent months to create a plan which allows the company to safely return to its full business operation model, with all employees now back in the office full time.
The firm has been implementing a phased return to office working, since January 2021, while also ensuring each member of staff’s individual circumstances have been addressed from a mental and physical health perspective.
Following government advice, Hope Capital has set up a variety of new measures to ensure it can create and maintain a safe workplace, where all staff feel comfortable working. This includes routine testing before entering the office premises, the distribution of mental health surveys for staff to complete regularly, the set-up of screens and safe workstations in the office, amongst many other measures.
Jonathan Sealey, CEO at Hope Capital, commented: “The health and safety of our employees is always our top priority, which is why we have taken a measured approach to reopening our office.”
“Despite a tough year, we have remained resilient and adapted to a new way of working when required, which enabled us to continue to lend and deliver the same innovative, flexible and tailored solutions to brokers and their clients.
“However, with restrictions easing and a roadmap out of lockdown, we believe now is the time to return to some normality while ensuring we provide a COVID safe workspace. Operating from the office enables us to continue delivering an efficient service to our brokers and clients from enquiry to completion. We feel fully confident we are now in an even greater position to continue to assist brokers and their clients with their bridging finance enquiries and are delighted to return to a sense of normality, albeit at a safe social distance.”
