In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to provide you with an update on our ongoing efforts to continue assisting clients while also protecting the health and safety of our workforce.
We have instituted a mandatory working from home policy for all our North American offices. With conditions changing daily, we will re-evaluate the status of our policy at the end of the month. HOK has a sophisticated system in place to support distributed work for all our staff. While working remotely, we are completely connected. Our advanced technology options to support remote work include Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, a virtual private network (VPN) and remote desktop protocol (RDP) along with various cloud-based collaboration platforms already being used on many projects.
We value our relationships with our clients and partners. We remain committed to providing the level of service and responsiveness you associate with HOK. Together we will see our way through this period.
We wish you and your families the best.
HOK Chairman and CEO
